Earlier this month, a group from the University of Iowa Lifetime Enrichment Adult Program arrived in Washington to view Washington County Barn Quilts.

Rosemary Pacha and Julie Mangold, barn quilt committee members, served as tour guides for the two van loads of guests. The tour began at the Washington County fairgrounds where they saw the State Fair, County Fair and Iowa quilt blocks as well as the replica of the World’s Tallest Cornstalk.

The groups then traveled the Amish Loop tour from Washington to Riverside, Kalona and returned to Washington.
