Sac City, Iowa: Barn Quilt Capital of the World

Quilts that are hung on the outsides of barns, not quilts big enough to cover barns. Which would be insane. But it's what we imagined.

Barn Quilt Capital of the World

Sac County barn quilts are visible as you travel the countryside. Mounted on barns and corn cribs, all these quilts have an agricultural theme and are identified by signs near the roadside. More quilts are seen in all the communities in Sac County as well. Sac County is truly the "Barn Quilt Capital of the World."

Who knew? July 2009: Added photo by Gina Godding of a stunning quilt barn in Early, Iowa, depicting a "Wild Goose" pattern on this particular corn crib.
