Three area committees: Eastern, Central and Western Committees are coordinating efforts to promote Quiltway with fabric quilt and painted barn quilt displays along the HWY 12 corridor. Watch for the eight-page publication and radio promotions which will inform travelers about display sites.
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.
