Patchwork Passion

We are once again participating in the Nebraska Passport Program, and this year we're particularly excited to be included on the Patchwork Passion tour. We are one of eight stops that celebrate the proud quiltmaking tradition in our state.

There is so much to see, do and learn on this tour. Like...

  • Did you know Calico Annie's Quilt Shop is located in a Hardware Store built in 1894? They still use the rolling ladder to hang quilts and  the hand-pull elevator to get from one level to the next.
  • And, in addition to stocking 3,000 bolts of cotton fabrics, Prairie Point Junction is known online as Wool Felt Central and has an entire corner of the shop dedicated to wools and felts.

That's just some of what you'll encounter as you make your way around Nebraska.

You can also collect patterns to recreate your own simplified version of a sampler quilt from our collection.

You can pick up a Log Cabin pattern here at Quilt House, but you can get the remaining pieces at these stops:
Country Traditions in Fremont
Pat’s Creative in Hemingford
Quilters Candy Shoppe in O’Neill
The Quilting Cupboard in Valentine

And if you'd like to see what the finished replica sampler looks like, be sure to stop by Wagner’s Quilts & Conversations, where it is on display.

They did an exceptional job making this piece.

If you have already been to one of these stops, but didn't get a pattern, please email us at info@quiltstudy.org, and we'll help you get a digital copy so you can finish your piece.
