Missouri Bicentennial Quilt

4-H Quilt

We are proud to be the home of the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt. This beautiful piece of art was created by quilters all over the state, each making a block to represent their county- all 114 of them! 

This exhibit also features the 4-H Quilt made in honor of the Bicentennial. 

In addition to these two quilts, we are delighted to feature each of these quilters and their counties, telling their stories and histories.
