ON Tuesday, October 8, the Jessamine Piece Quilters installed our “Barn Quilts of Jessamine County” Quilt at the local Chamber of Commerce, 116 S Main St, Nicholasville, KY 40356. It will be on display here until early December, when it will move to its permanent location at the Jessamine County Public Library.
(Feb. 2020: Quilt is now on permanent display at the Jessamine County Public Library. Photos in another post soon.)
This quilt was created by the Jessamine Piece Quilters to celebrate the barn quilts in our county which were created and installed in 2007 and 2008. Our quilt includes a small block with a representation of a barn quilt in each block.
Brochures are available which give information on the quilt as well as the barn quilts themselves and their locations on the barns in Jessamine County. Or you can download a brochure here (Print with color, duplex, flip on short edge; fold in half with title collage on front and barn quilt in the center).
