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).

Kidz Place Quilts

In November we delivered some of the charity quilts we’ve been working on for Kidz Place, a daycare center for medically fragile children.

The faces are blurred for privacy, but take our word for it, there were some big smiles!  So much fun to see the quilts loved by little hands!
