Hermann businesses plan ‘Threads of Missouri’ quilt exhibition Thursday through Monday

Posted

Two quilts created to celebrate Missouri’s bicentennial in 2021 will be exhibited in Hermann at two different  businesses Thursday through Monday.

The “Threads of Missouri Quilt Exhibit” will be viewable from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 25, Friday, March 26, Saturday, March 27, and Monday, March 29, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 28.

The Missouri State Bicentennial Quilt, featuring 121 blocks from 91 counties, will be displayed at Silver Owl Specialty Quilts & Fabrics, 207 Schiller Street. The State Historical Society of Missouri, a partner in the Bicentennial Alliance, and Missouri Star Quilt Company, in partnership with the Missouri State Quilters Guild, teamed up to create the quilt. The Missouri Bicentennial Quilt showcases the unique characteristics of Missouri culture and style.

The Gasconade County quilt block was designed and sewn by Dr. Jaya Parker and features the Gasconade County Courthouse overlooking the Missouri River, the rolling hills and grapevines with grape clusters, and the Missouri River Bridge.

The Missouri 4-H Bicentennial Quilt will be displayed at Quilting Bee Fabrics, off of Route H at 119 Bavarian Hills Plaza, Suite D.

The State 4-H quilt was pieced together by Dr. Ina Linville, former director of MU Extension’s 4-H Center. It was created from blocks sent in by 4-H members from across the state’s eight regions, representing the area where they live. Appletree Quilt Center of Columbia pieced and finished the quilt.

“We are excited to feature these historic quilts in our historic city,” said Tammy Bruckerhoff, tourism and economic development director for Hermann. “The local quilt shops are keeping history alive with the art of making quilts, for today and tomorrow.”
