Colourful blocks showcase St. George’s history

BARN QUILT TRAILS Photo by Natalie Paddon, Brant News South Dumfries Historical Society president Cliff Jones, Brant 4-H Club leader Joan Crawford-Wehrstein and St. George bicentennial committee chair John Wehrstein showcase a few of the 12 barn quilt trail blocks that will mark the village’s bicentennial.


Colourfully painted blocks each telling a different part of St. George’s history will serve as a lasting legacy of the community’s bicentennial.

Twelve eight-foot square blocks featuring originally designed art will make up the St. George Barn Quilt Trail, which organizers of the project say will not only enhance the rural landscape but hopefully also bring tourism to both the village and the County of Brant.
