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.

It has been a couple years now that we have been patiently waiting for this day to come! Ann's quilts began arriving this week for her exhibit and we have all but had to catch the drool as we pour over them!

 

Ann is a National Educator, Quilter Extraordinaire and kind and giving person too!

We are so delighted to have an exhibit with her incredible talent gracing the main gallery at the Missouri Quilt Museum - starting 2023 off right!!  ...see more

Featured Gallery

In 2013 Dr Karen Nyberg was priveledged to live at the International Space Station, she was the 50th female astronaut. During her time there, she made a quilt block... IN SPACE!!  That fantastic idea launched the invitation to quilters all over the world in making their own star quilt blocks. These were assembled into 28 quilts in the Astronomical Block Project. 

Join us as we welcome Dr Nyberg and her personal artwork, as well as the Astronomical Quilts to the museum May 2 - August 19.
