The Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail
The Ottawa County 4-H Program and the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council have teamed up to create the Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail. Barn quilts are painted quilt squares fashioned on boards and mounted on a barn or other building. Unlike cloth quilts that are made up of a series of squares, a barn quilt is almost always a single square. Today, barn quilt trails can be found in over 200 communities in 47 states. The seed for this project was planted by beloved former 4-H Educator Kathy Booher; today, Ottawa County has over 25 barn quilts with more being added all the time!
