This summer my family is getting an intimate look at Iowa as we venture off the main highway arteries to experience authentic Midwest Americana with AmericInn. Seeing the Iowa Barn Quilts off the beaten path is one of the sights we’ve been enjoying during our trips. If this is a new concept to you, Quilt Barns are not actual fabric quilts but rather a large piece of wood or another material like steel that is painted to look like a quilt block. The best part: they are all different! Here is a map of the Iowa Barn Quilt Trail. Above and below are handful of Iowa Barn Quilts we stumbled upon. But next time we’ll use the map so we can see more of these creative barn additions.
