The Highland Lakes Quilt Guild invited Janet Plentl, creator of JaVib Barn Quilts to present the History of Barn Quilts and the Establishment of the Texas Hill Country Barn Quilt Trail. Janet is artist and founder of JaVibe Barn Quilts in Marble Falls. With over forty years of fabric quilt-making experience, Janet has worked with a multitude of patterns, quilts blocks, and color combinations. Her fascination with barn quilts beginning in 2018 inspired her colorful hand painted designs, which now adorn store fronts, sheds, fences, porches, and of course barns throughout the Texas hill country. She has commissioned over 500 barn quilts to date. This year alone, Janet has conducted 108 classes in the art of making your own barn quilts.
