The Missouri Bi-Centennial Quilt is making a stop in Southwest Missouri, but you better hurry if you want to see it. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.
The State Historical Society of Missouri and Missouri Star Quilt Company, in partnership with the Missouri State Quilters Guild, teamed up to create the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt. With one quilt block to represent every Missouri county and the independent City of St. Louis, the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt showcases the unique characteristics of the state’s culture and style.
It was a long road to create the quilt. Submissions were accepted for nearly a year starting in October of 2018. The quilt will be on display today and tomorrow at Joplin City Hall from 8 pm until 5 pm. To see the tour schedule or up-close pictures of the quilt, visit Missour2021.org.
