The colorful Barn Quilts welcome visitors to explore Kankakee County’s scenic countryside. These 8 foot by 8 foot quilt patterns at select homesteads share a unique story of growth, celebration, toil and tradition.
Take a drive down memory lane as the story of our Barn Quilts unfolds.
The Barn Quilt concept originated in Ohio and Kankakee County adopted the initiative in 2008. In cooperation with the Kankakee County Convention & Visitors Bureau, University of Illinois Extension and Kankakee Quiltmakers, local artists and barn owners worked together to create a county-wide tour of rural splendor. The Barn Quilt squares are 8 foot by 8 foot wooden panels, painted with durable exterior paint for prolonged display.
