This wooden quilt square was created by artist Becky Malkovich to decorate the side of the Blair Farm barn. Homer Historical Society secretary Dee Camp created the design and color scheme. Barn quilt squares are common in Amish communities, in some parts of the East, and have been replicated in some southwestern Michigan areas.
If you’d like to make one of your own, please call Dee at (517) 524-7348 for information and future class times.
