Copper Country Quilt Block Trail

 

Travel through villages and countryside on a self guided tour through the copper country and enjoy boldly painted quilt blocks on barns, garages, and businesses.  
The Copper Country Quilt Block Trail is part of a volunteer public art movement extending across the country-celebrating our rural heritage and traditional arts, and involving area residents in making art.  
New blocks are added throughout the year.  See our website for updates.  coppercountryquiltblocktrail.com

Natives of Iowa where there are many barn quilts, Tommy and Mike Gilpin thought it would be fun to have a barn quilt on their garage in town. The pattern “Classic Country 8 Point” is done in 3 colors which contrast with the garage & housecolor. The barn quilt is 4′ x 4′. It was constructed & installed by Industrial Graphics, Inc. of Houghton.
