Barn Quilts of Bureau County August 30


Join us for an informative PowerPoint presentation about the Barn Quilts that have been showing up for several years around Bureau County.  They will give a history of the American Barn Quilt movement in the United States with a focus will be on how Bureau County got started in this program and how it has grown to more than 70 Barn Quilts at 66 locations…with more being added every month.  The group will show a photo of every Barn Quilt currently displayed in Bureau County and also some that are displayed in other areas in the United States.  Along with the photographs, there will be a few small examples on display.  Valerie Jensen will share the design and construction elements that go into making these beautiful Barn Quilts.  Information will also be given on buying or creating a Barn Quilt.
