To feature barn quilts

Three newspapers owned by Evans Printing and Publishing - the Cresco Times Plain Dealer, Lime Springs Herald and Riceville Recorder - are currentlyin the development stages of a special section featuring area barn quilts.
While official barn quilts are typcially 8 ft. by 8 ft., and hang on 50-year-old barns or older, barn quilts of every size and shape will be showcased in the section. These barn quilts will be featured alongside smaller and larger  quilts that are displayed in any location, even along gravel roads or on sign posts.

Participants are asked to submit:
1. Name
2. Physical address
3. Measurements of quilt
4. Design name
5. Why the design was chosen, or the inspiration behind the design
6. Colors used (and reasons for color choice, if any)
7. Any general information about the quilt
Photos of the quilt, along with the above information can be emailed  to keri@crescotimes.com; recorder@myomnitel.com; or evansppc@frontiernet.net.
For those without access to a computer, please call Keri at Cresco TPD, 563-547-3601; Casandra at Recorder, 641-985-2142; or Marcie at Herald, 563-566-2687.
