Filed under: Uncategorized – take a look at the Barn Quilts of Grundy County segment on KCCI Channel 8 News!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking around two KCCI Channel 8 Iowa News reporters to view a few quilt blocks.  Steve Karlin, KCCI Anchor/Reporter, does a segment called “Karlin Covers Central Iowa” and came to cover the unique Barn Quilts of Grundy County Project.  We drove around the countryside, KCCI taking video shots and I explaining this and that about the project.  We even had a couple curious barn owners venture out to see what we were up to.  Little did they know that they’d be interviewed.  The short segment on the ten o’clock news gave a brief synopsis of the Barn Quilt Project and gave a taste of Grundy County’s rural, agricultural heritage. 
A big thank you to KCCI and Steve Karlin for taking the time to meet myself and the Barn Quilts of Grundy County Project.  We may not be the only project in Iowa, but we are proud to be the “original” barn quilt project in Iowa!
