3 agriculture-themed quilts going up

Three new barn quilts that honor organizations that support agriculture in Ashtabula County will be installed at the Ashtabula County Fairgrounds July 29.

The three quilts will join the Farm Bureau barn quilt, installed last year, on the concrete wall at the main entrance and facing the large parking lot for the fairgrounds.

Each quilt is 4-by-4 feet. Future Farmers of America, the Ashtabula County 4-H program and Ohio State University will be honored by the quilts. The 4-H quilt’s design is by a club member. Peers selected the design from a slate of options presented by other 4-H members in Ashtabula County.

Three more barn quilts will be added to this area of the fairgrounds, where a Farm Bureau barn quilt was installed in 2014,
