from Fort Morgan, Colorado

Today, from Fort Morgan, Colorado and the Fort Morgan Times is the story "Local businesses join barn quilt project". There are several pictures of local businesses that have (what appears to me to be) 2' x 2' quilt blocks on the outside walls or store front windows. It says that these are painted and installed free of charge. There is also a list of addresses for the 18 more barn quilts that have been put up in the past 18 months. I was only able to find one other reference to the project. The Morgan County Rural Electric Association ran a story last October titled: "Charming Barn Quilts Add Color Across Morgan County". I have not been able to find an active presence on the web.

Hi! My name is Ann and I live in Morgan County Colorado. I have an 8 foot barn quilt on the side of my barn shaped garage.
I recently got involved with the MC barn quilt group and am now on the board of the Morgan County Arts Council. One of the things we will be working on is making both the arts council and barn quilt project more active not only on the web but also in our community.
The arts council does have more info about the barn quilts on their website:

I also have a little more info about the project on my blog
