What role did the barn quilt committee play?
Kevin Peyton and his family recruited key people from all over the county to be on the barn quilt committee. This is the group that made decisions about which barns to “quilt”, what criteria to use in making those choices, and hundreds of other decisions along the way. Farm Bureau, Arts Council, 4-H, Tourism, and Iowa Barn Foundation were all represented on the committee. Most of the communities in the county were also represented on the committee.
