Three area committees: East, Central and West are in action coordinating efforts to promote our Byway with fabric quilt and painted barn quilt displays along the HWY 12 corridor. These committees are creating an eight-page publication to entice visitors into our communities. This publication will be inserted in local papers along the Byway. Members are also organizing radio promotions and speakers at various sites.
Committees chairs: East Area-Iris Dutton-402-889-8485 and Jodi Kilton-402-755-2327; Central Area- Marilyn Janovec-402-857-3611 and Mary Eiler-307-220-4280; West Area-Connie Larrington-402-497-2261. Celebrate Nebraska’s Sesquicentennial with your participation in See the Byway the Quiltway. Call one of the committee chairs in your area.
RE: Outdoor barn quilts- Over 70 wooden quilt blocks have been created for trails in and around the community of Ponca. Iris’s goal is to have them all up by March 1, 2017, our state’s Sesquicentennial Celebration. Keep an eye out for the décor along HWY 12. Iris is excited to assist you with the instruction of creating outdoor barn quilts.
