FFA state officers help with Barn Quilt efforts
Wisconsin FFA officers Kim Forrester of Brodhead FFA, state reporter, and Tommy Butts of Black Hawk FFA, state secretary, pose with the FFA Rising Star Barn Quilt placed on a barn at the Ahrens Acres Farm and Greenhouse, W2176 Greenbush Road, Brodhead. The quilt was painted using the traditional FFA colors of corn gold and blue.
MONROE - Wisconsin State FFA officers including Tommy Butts, state secretary, who represents Section 4 through the Black Hawk FFA and Kimberly Forrester, state reporter, who represents Section 5 through the Brodhead FFA, have contributed to the new tourism project started in Green County. Barn Quilts are being made to promote and celebrate the visual arts through the combination of the many unique barns in the county that have played an important role in the economy through the generations by adding the warmth, beauty, and artistic expression of quilts. A barn quilt is painted on a wood block (typically 8 foot x 8 foot), then hung on a farm building.
