Barn Quilt News...

Over the past 10 days (or so), there have been a number of news stories or Internet posts that mention Barn Quilts.

  • Maybe even more note worthy is the Headlight-Herald story by Denise Porter from Tillamook County, Oregon: From farm to fabric: quilt trail celebrates heritage. This is the story of the first Quilt Block in phase one of the Tillamook County Quilt Trail Coalition, and it will hang on the Chamber of Commerce building.

  • The Lake Area Quilters' Guild from Clear Lake, Iowa, will hold their June meeting on Thursday, June 4th, at 7:00 PM in the community room of the Clear Lake City Hall. Pam Hanson will present the June program on barn quilts. She will actually walk the group through making a barn quilt. I would guess that you should contact the Guild if you would like to attend as a guest. Their blog is: .

  • The story "Mason County Quilt Trail has something for everyone", in the Charleston Gazette is interesting, but I have not been able to find a web presence. This is West Virgina's first Quilt Trail, and the contact is listed as Mason County Tourism Center at 304-675-678

Thanks for the mention. The book goes to the press at the end of this year, so don't look for it quite that soon! But I will certainly let you know.
