Since the pioneer days of the American Midwest, quilts have been a cornerstone of Missouri culture, fashion, and tradition. In honor of our great state’s two hundred year anniversary, The State Historical Society of Missouri and Missouri Star Quilt Company, in partnership with the Missouri State Quilters Guild, teamed up to create the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt! With one quilt block to represent every Missouri county and the independent City of St. Louis, the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt showcases the unique characteristics of Missouri culture and style.
The Missouri Bicentennial Quilt has been completed and is ready to tour our state. After a delay in the tour The Knox County Kut-Ups Quilt Club are proud to show the quilt on June 27 and 28 at the Edina Sentinel Office. Saturday hours are 9:00AM to 5:00PM. Sunday the quilt can be viewed from 9:00AM to 5:00PM.
The Knox County block was designed by a committee and completed by Carolyn Morgret, President of Knox County Kut Ups and member of the Knox County Historical Society.
