Outdoor barn quilts: To acknowledge Nebraska’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, over 200 wooden quilt blocks have been created to enhance See the Byway the Quiltway 2017. How many quilt blocks can you spot in our communities and along HWY 12? Iris is excited to assist you with the instruction of creating outdoor barn quilts.
