Barn quilts add
Some area residents have begun creating and installing barn quilts and they hope the idea will catch on in Kingsbury County and the surrounding area.
Barn quilts are large painted wooden or metal quilt squares that are hung on a barn or other building. Some people display freestanding quilts.
Barn quilts have been popular for many years in some of the eastern and southern states, but have gained popularity across the United States and Canada.
Many areas promote quilt trails, where a series of barn quilts can be seen at different locations along a route.
Today there are established quilt trails in more than half of the states in the country. There are several documented barn quilts in South Dakota, but no official quilt trail in the state.
Joan Wollschlager, Mary Lee and Sally Lee all display barn quilts they created and would like to see a quilt trail established in Kingsbury County.
