Alexander County resident Carol Mitchell is an artist and, as she described, “a traveling teacher.”

“I go to wherever anybody wants me to go, and I teach 10 people at a time,” said Carol. “The class is four hours.”

At the class’s conclusion, each participant takes home the 2-by-2-foot barn quilt that she or he painted.

Read More about Carol and her Barn Quilt Classes in this article by Mary Canrobert published in the Hickory Daily Times.


Carol Mitchell and her husband Steve are owners & operators of Mountainside Farms in Alexander County. Her popular Barn Quilt projects are an extension of her lifelong involvement in agriculture.

I offer classes to different groups in Alexander and surrounding counties. Gather a group of at least 10 friends and we will schedule your own "Painting Party"! These can be held at your choice of location for parties, engagements, birthdays, etc.


Classes are usually available at the Hiddenite Center on a monthly basis. Just call the Hiddenite Center at 828-632-6966 to learn about my upcoming classes. For more information about ordering Barn Quilt Squares or upcoming classes, please email, text or call at 828-612-6077. We at Mountainside Farms are happy to serve you!

A dedication ceremony was held on December 8 for the new Community Barn Quilt Project which has been installed on the eastern wall of the Alexander County Services Center in downtown Taylorsville. A work in progress, project coordinators believe this display will attract more visitors to the county and town as barn quilt enthusiasts become aware of the new installation. Read More>>

Barn Quilt Squares are a welcome sign to any barn, garage, outbuilding or front porch. I paint 2' x 2' and 4' x 4' squares by order. These can be delivered or picked up at our farm. Our boards are primed and painted both on the back and front. A sealer is applied to the front side of the board when the painting is finished. I can create a customized Barn Quilt Square from a photo if you are interested in a certain design or theme.

The History of
Barn Quilt Squares

Barn Quilt Squares were started in Ohio by a lady who wanted to honor her mother with a quilt square on her barn; so the first Barn Quilt Trail was started in 2001 with the design of the Ohio star. This is the design that I offer in my classes for each to start painting. There are 43 states that have Barn Quilt Trails.
