2009 is here and the Barn Quilts of Grundy County is heading in a positive direction.  With new barn quilts going up this Spring/Summer, bus tours, the Iowa State Fair in August, and other projects going on, it is difficult to NOT think positive. 
Currently I am working on a 2009 Barn Quilts of Grundy County Travel Guide.  This guide will be a free item for tourists to pick up as they travel the countryside.  Inside it will include barn quilt location map, photos, general tour information, recreation opportunities, background info on the project and business advertisements from many of our loyal project supporters around Grundy County.  This is an exciting tourism tool I will begin working on and hope potential tourists and travel guides that journey through our county find it informational and useful. 
Lately I’ve been thinking about the many counties in Iowa that now have the Barn Quilt project.  As far as I know, we have I think 32-33 counties in Iowa that are “authentic” barn quilt projects.  Not all are as established as Grundy County, but they are on their way to developing the project and making it unique to their interests and specific area.  I think it would be nice to hear from all of the project counties and see how progress is being made.  So, if you are working on a Barn Quilt project in Iowa or know of a project in your county, please leave me a comment or email me with your happenings.  I like to hear of the different ways people use the project and develop it, because it really wouldn’t be that neat of a project if everyone did everything the same way we did.  So, please leave me a comment, I’d love to hear from you and hear you’re 2009 is off to a great start!
