Barn Quilts of Washington County

Posted: Saturday, June 5th, 2010 at 5:10 am

Washington County is on the cusp of being proclaimed “The Barn Quilt Capital of Iowa.” There will be more than 110 quilts on display this fall. The organization Barn Quilts of Washington County is designing a map that will include all the barn quilts in the county. Organizers say it will be a glossy full color travel map including professional photography and the location of the barn quilts, as well as the owner’s names and addresses. The maps will also include a space for local businesses to advertise. For more information contact the Washington County Extension, or Rachel Fishback at 461-5541.
