AHS Quilt Block selected for the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt!

AHS Quilt Block Submission

The AHS quilt block has been selected for the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt.

The judging committee – composed of Missouri Star Quilt Company’s In-Town Education program manager, Missouri State Quilters Guild president, and the State Historical Society of Missouri associate director – has made final selections, and the AHS block has been chosen for inclusion in the final quilt.

The Missouri Bicentennial Quilt will premiere on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at 2:00 pm at the Missouri Governor’s Mansion.

All submissions for the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt will be available for viewing on the Missouri 2021 website through the end of 2021.

67,000 stitches were needed to create the quilt square for Jefferson County for the Missouri Bicentennial quilt to be traveling the state. The other 113 counties needed to show their completed design by Sept 1.

Our own Allen Flamm drew the picture and Patti Allen of St. John’s Lutheran Church quilted the piece.

    Hello…Kind of off topic but curious if anyone would like to sew a pillow for me. I’d gladly pay some it for their efforts. I’m certain there’s a quilting pro in Arnold who would be willing. I still have some of my grandmothers quilts in storage. Beautiful pieces. Ha! Jamie Critchlow 636-375-9566. Thank you

    Ps. The quilt looks great!!!

      Hi Jamie,
      I’ve thought about this and I would recommend Patti Allen who works at St. John’s Lutheran Church. She is the one who “embroidered or sewed” the Jefferson County quilt block on the Bicentennial quilt. It’s worth a try. Most of the quilters at 3 different churches are not back to quilting. The church phone is 464-0096.
