Mission statement:

The mission of the barn quilt program is to celebrate quilting as a traditional art form, appreciate the prairie architecture of farm buildings, promote art appreciation, stimulate county economic growth while celebrating our agricultural heritage. Barns and corn cribs are chosen for homes for quilt designs. The actual quilt square is made of two sheets of high grade plywood. The quilt pattern is transferred to the plywood and painted with specifically chosen paint to withstand the weather. The quilt pattern and location must meet the approval of the barn quilt steering committee. Financing is handled on a case by case basis. Contributions or gifts are accepted. 4-H, youth, garden and service clubs as well as families and others are encouraged to participate in producing and funding the county quilt designs.

**The Barn Quilts are numbered on the map, which coincide with the numbers under the Map Key -Quilt Theme headings.

**Follow the linked names to a page dedicated to that specific Plymouth County Barn Quilt. Anyone wanting to share the story of your barn quilt and/or photos of it are more than welcome to send the same to Linda Ziemann, the site coordinator.
