Barn Quilts

20 Tama County Barn Quilts have been erected as public art across the rural landscape. How many can you spot during your visit?  The Barn Quilt concept came to Iowa in 2003 as a way to celebrate the unique structures that are disappearing from our landscape as well as the beautiful folk art of quilting.   Hint: All official 8 x 8 ft blocks can be observed from a blacktop road.
