I'm back

I have been away from the computer for more than a week, and I returned to find a little news from my Barn Quilt searches done in abstention. There is now a new site added to the Barn Quilt Memories sidebar from Caledonia (Houston County), Minnesota. They are the self-proclaimed "Wild Turkey Capital" of Minnesota. I assume that this mention of Wild Turkey is referring to the bird and not the libation. There is an easy to down-load brochure of the Barn Quilt project, but I was not able to locate the map.

I have found a notice of a Barn Quilt meeting to be held the Blount County Public Library in Maryville, Tennessee at 7:00 on August 12th. (sorry for the short notice) The Appalachian Quilt Trail is a partnership of Clinch-Powell Resource Conservation and Development Council.

There is a story in the Courier-Journal from Louisville, Kentucky about the eight-member "Buffalo Gals" homemakers' group in Stamping Ground, Kentucky, in Scott County. They now claim to have created 147 Quilt Squares for Scott County and beyond, and also have a wonderful web-site. On Sept. 4, the Buffalo Gals will host two free workshops at the UK extension office in Georgetown to teach anyone who is interested the art of painting barn quilts. For more information, e-mail Minch at or call (502) 863-0984.

There is another news story about the Powder Springs Quilt Trail in the Atlanta Journal-Contitution. This is also known as the Southern Quilt Trail in Cobb County, Ga.
