Barron County Fair

Fair Quilt Contest

Barn quilts were originally conceived as a way to encourage economic development by promoting ag-tourism and local businesses while bringing travelers to rural areas. While quilts are usually made up of a series of squares of the same pattern placed together, a barn quilt is always a single square.

Barron County Fair Quilt Contest

This geometric-based square is the perfect opportunity to funnel your quilting creativity into a show-stopping square that will stop Fairgoers in their tracks. The winning square will be reproduced into a barn quilt board by Perfect Image Sign of Rice Lake.  The board will be hung up on one of the buildings on the Barron County Fairgrounds.

The fabric squares become property of the  Barron County Fair.  The squares will be sewn into a quilt and put in the Fairest of the Fair Basket to be auctioned off at the  Wisconsin Fair Association Convention representing Barron County. Blueberry Line Quilting Shop will be putting the quilt together and quilt it.
