More Ohio quilt barn tours
Perhaps because Ohio's Adams County was the first Midwest area to have an extensive barn quilt tour, the state is especially rich in barn quilt development. In addition to Adams County (slide 2) and Vinton County (slide 8), Ohio barn-quilt tours include:
-- Champaign County: Sixty quilt barns (including the cardinal design at left) dot this lovely area, about 70 miles west of Columbus; the annual Barn Quilt Tour in the fall features quilt-related activities.
-- Athens County: Options for driving to more than 20 barns quilt include the 45-mile Applique Loop, the 45-mile Stitch Loop and the 55-mile Quilter's Loop.
-- Harrison County: Sixteen quilt barns welcome you to this Eastern Ohio county. Designs were chosen from patterns submitted by local residents.
