Missouri 4-H Bicentennial Quilt

From its earliest days, sewing and quilting have been popular 4-H projects. While the technology used may have changed, the love and care of passing knowledge and traditions to our youth has not. The Missouri 4-H Bicentennial Quilt was created from blocks sent in by 4-Hers from across the state. Each of the 8 Missouri 4-H regions were asked to submit blocks that represented the area they live in and 4-H to celebrate Missouri and its history. Missouri 4-H is grateful to the 4-H youth and their leaders for creating the quilt squares; to past 4-H director Dr. Ina Linville for her expertise in piecing the quilt together; to Appletree Quilt Center for doing the quilting; and to JOANN Fabrics for donating the fabric for the quilt. The Missouri 4-H Bicentennial Quilt will travel the state for all to see and then displayed in the 4-H Building at Missouri State Fair before returning to the Center for Youth Development on the MU Campus for anyone to visit.
