Barn Quilts

Clip: Season 2 Episode 9 | 4m 28s

Drive almost anywhere in Shawano County, and you’ll encounter barn quilts: plywood squares painted like quilt blocks and hung on old barns. Retirees Jim and Irene Leuenberger brought the artful concept to the county after driving through Kentucky, and with help from the community, they’ve painted and put up more than 200 of the colorful squares.
