Sac County Barn Quilts

If you have driven through Sac County you probably have noticed all of their beautiful barn quilts. This is a great book that was published in 2007. It has all of their barn quilts along with a great history of the barns.  It was driving through Sac County that inspired me to make my first barn quilt.  Hats off to Sac County for getting the barn quilt movement started in western Iowa!
