St George Barn Quilt Trail
The Ontario Barn Quilt Trail welcomes the St George Barn Quilt Trail, a bicentennial project. Twelve, eight- foot square barn quilt blocks have been colourfully painted and installed on barns, farm buildings through out the community. Each block tells a different part of St. George’s history and will serve as a lasting legacy of the community’s bicentennial. “They’re there for the people to enjoy and learn about the rich history of the village,” said Brant 4-H Club leader Joan Crawford-Wehrstein who thought up the idea for the project last summer....Brant News by Natalie Paddon
