... from the past few weeks

I have been busy with a new job for the past few weeks, and I have not been able to read many of the e-mail notices from the world of Barn Quilts. I will attempt to catch up this afternoon.

There are over a dozen Barn Quilts in Lake County, California. Go to:, and click on the “Quilt Trail.” The Lake County News is doing a great job of documenting these additions.

A guided bus tour of all 54 of the barns on the Clinton County (Ohio) Barn Quilt Trail is planned for Oct. 13 from 8 a.m. until approximately 4 p.m. Lunch will be provided along with information about project history, farm stories and more. For more information and to register contact Carol at The Cotton Junky Quilt Shop 366-3602.

2010 Plymouth County (Iowa) Fair Queen Kristen Ahlers gets help from fair board members including Brent McNaughton as well as other royalty members (hidden) in displaying the "Barn Quilts of Plymouth County" quilt at the fair auction Sunday in Pioneer Village. The 42 squares represent barn quilts and welcome quilts in Plymouth County. The quilt sold for $10,000. The LeMars Daily Sentinel has a photograph of this amazing Quilt, or see this at: The Sioux City Journal at: ( Photo 1 ) or ( Photo 2 )

I suggest keeping up with Suzi Parron at: Her book will be a big hit, and she keeps adding to her blog. Stay tuned.

Columbia County (Wisconsin) is starting a Barn Quilt Trail. Go to: for more information, or contact Margo Holzman at:

After months of their hard work, I have added the Wardsville Ontario Barn Quilts blog, to the sidebar of Barn Quilt Websites. They have been very busy with this Bicentennial Celebration and it is worth more than a look-see.
