Missouri 2021 Presents on April 8, 11 a.m. will explore the cultural and art of quilting and its long-standing tradition that began in Ancient Egypt and still very much a part of Missouri’s heritage. Perhaps, you’ve seen the patterns of a quilt on a barn while traveling the countryside or you bought a raffle ticket for a quilt to support a community cause. Maybe your own family has passed down an heirloom quilt that you treasure and display with pride. For the past year, the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt has been part of the efforts to commemorate the state’s 200 years with a unique display of blocks representing all of Missouri’s 114 counties and the City of St. Louis. While the quilt has been traveling the state, additional communities have created a special quilt for the bicentennial, including Missouri 4-H, Missouri State Parks, along with several counties in the state.
