The Howell County University of Missouri Extension in West Plains, MO is offering a barn quilt class July 16, 2020 from 9:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. American barn quilts can be tracked back almost 300 years, to the arrival of immigrants from the central regions of Europe.
Decorating barns and farmsteads with colorful quilt squares peaked by the beginning of the 20th century and slowly gave way to different forms of paintings and advertisements. Today, barn quilts have become popular again, and some communities have barn quilt trails.
The Howell County MU Extension is offering this class to teach individuals how to make a barn quilt. The goal is to keep track of where barn quilts are placed in the community to create a barn quilt trail for local residents and visitors to our community.
Class participants will paint a 2’ x 2’ square of plywood, with the quilt pattern of their choice. All materials and equipment will be provided. Bring your own bag lunch. We will provide tea, lemonade, coffee, water and snacks. The class will be held at 1376 Bill Virdon Blvd., West Plains, MO 65775 The class is limited to 16 participants.
To register for the classes, or for more details, contact Howell County Extension office at
