Barn Quilt Project

The Fillmore County Barn Quilt Committee is working on the first two Barn Quilts for Fillmore County. Volunteers worked last week to draw the patterns and paint two 8’ x 8’ quilt blocks.

The quilt block sponsored by the Fillmore County 4-H Council has a four-leaf clover design and will be placed at the Fairgrounds. The other quilt block donated by Lloydene and Gerald Stengel has the LeMoyne Star pattern and will be located on a machine shed on the Stengel farm on Road 2 west of Shickley.

The Pat & Renee Kamler family have also created a barn quilt with a pattern that will placed on their barn on Road P northwest of Shickley.

All three Barn Quilt blocks may be viewed during the Fillmore County fair in the agricultural building. Information about the project and how a person can become involved will also be available.

People who may have a barn or building that could be considered to hold a barn quilt are encouraged to let the committee know by contacting the FC Visitors Co. at 759-4910. Ideally the barn quilt could be seen from both directions of travel and from a hard surfaced road.

The Lemoyne Star is beautiful!
I'll look forward to seeing the Fillmore County, Nebraska Quilt Trail grow. It is exciting that the 4-H youth are involved, too. Great work -- your volunteers are to be commended!
The quilt trail now encompasses 27 states (east to west coast) and Ontario & British Columbia.
