Washington County To Become Iowa’s “Barn Quilt Capitol”
Posted: June 14, 2010 @ 8:43 am In Today's Local News
Tomorrow, the Washington County Board of Supervisors will vote to approve a proclamation that would make Washington County the official “Barn Quilt Capitol” of Iowa. Unlike typical quilts, barn quilts are painted on square blocks of wood and displayed near the top of a structure’s frame. The website BarnQuiltsIowa.com provides free maps and information to over one-hundred wooden quilt-blocks that can be found on barns throughout Washington County. BarnQuiltsIowa.com also sells “Barn Block Kits” that can be delivered to your home.
