Quilter to discuss Missouri Highway 36 Quilt Trail
The 2018 Missouri Highway 36 Quilt Trail and how a quilt can be created from blocks available at shops across northern Missouri is the topic of a program Saturday, March 17, at the Savannah Branch.
Angela Bush of Glenda’s Sewing Cupboard north of St. Joseph will speak at 2 p.m. in the Community Room. The store is participating in the program with a quilt block designed by Glenda Bush.
The quilt trail involves shops from St. Joseph to Hannibal that have created blocks for this year’s theme of “Ol’ Trail Town.” Beginning April 3 and running through October, the program gives participants a passport that is to be stamped at each store. The stores have free patterns for their blocks or kits that can be bought with supplies needed to make the blocks.
Once they have visited the shops and created a quilt top from the blocks, quilters will be entered in a prize drawing. Grand prize is a $25 gift certificate from each of the participating shops, while second prize is a $250 Visa card to be used for the 2019 Quilt Trail trip and third prize is a basket of fat quarters.
