Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015 15B In qut ur lan Iley a san Maggie Wells Staff Writer The Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a Barn Quilt and Artisan tour Saturday, Sept. 26, at locations throughout Indian Valley. Participants in this year's tour will be treated to 24 barn quilt locations in Greenville, Taylorsville, Crescent Mills and Genesee. There are also two locations with local artisans' wares. The tour begins in Greenville at the chamber office at 408 Main Street and continues to the first artisan stop located at 150 Standart Mine Rd. From there, participants can take a self-driving tour around the valley. Maps of the tour will be available at the chamber office. Barn quilts are painted quilt squares, usually fashioned on boards and then mounted on a barn or other building. "Originally barn quilts were hex symbols used in European countries to ward off evil spirits, but I also think it added to an otherwise bland winter countryside," said Jeff Titcomb, one of the lead organizer of the event. Renewed interest inbarn quilts in Indian Valley began five years ago when 4-H students Quincy painted some for the fairground buildings and Plumas Arts picked up the practice asa local artisan project in 2010. Indian Valley became involved since it boasts a large number of barns. "Indian Valley is one of three active trails of barn quilts in California," said See Tour, page 16B Celebrate fall with music, food and history Oct.
