Quilts on Barns Road Rally

October 10

Free

The Racine Arts Council and Real Racine are hosting an all-county “Quilts on Barns Road Rally”, Saturday, October 10th throughout urban and rural Racine County. Travel down rustic roads to enjoy brightly colored 8-foot by 8-foot wooden quilt pattern blocks installed on barns across the county. Quilt patterns can be found on barns in Burlington, Waterford, Wind Lake, Franksville, Raymond, Sturtevant, Mt. Pleasant, Wind Point, Yorkville, Norway and Racine. Two new quilt patterns , “Blue Ribbon Horses”, “Rusty Horseshoes” and “Quarter Horse Cross” have been designed and painted by local artist Libby Cameron. Libby’s expresses her imagination, creativity and sweet passion for the horse community in Caledonia.

If you are a resident of the county, display your quilts for others to see, on fence posts, from trees and on your front porch!

As you make your way around the county, see vistas of Lake Michigan and gorgeous farms, stop at local businesses in western Racine towns, pumpkin farms, downtown Racine restaurants, shops & art galleries and Sew n’ Save quilt store. We are loaded with fun attractions and things to do! Come visit Racine County on a beautiful fall day to see color and take an adventure!
