The Fillmore County Barn Quilt Committee is working on the first two barn quilts for Fillmore County. Volunteers worked last week to draw the patterns and paint two 8’ x 8’ quilt blocks. The quilt block sponsored by the Fillmore County 4-H Council has a four-leaf clover design and will be placed at the fairgrounds.

The other quilt block donated by Lloydene and Gerald Stengel has the LeMoyne Star pattern and will be located on a machine shed on the Stengel farm on Road 2 west of Shickley.

The Pat and Renee Kamler family has also created a barn quilt that will placed on their barn on Road P northwest of Shickley.

All three barn quilt blocks may be viewed during the Fillmore County Fair in the agricultural building. Information about the project and how a person can become involved will also be available.

People who may have a barn or building that could be considered to hold a barn quilt are encouraged to let the committee know by contacting the F.C. Visitors Committee at 759-4910. Ideally the barn quilt could be seen from both directions of travel and from a hard surfaced road.
