To celebrate the culturally significant role that quilts played in the
establishment of the West and the 100th anniversary of the founding of a National Monument at Scotts Bluff, the 2019 theme for the Oregon Trail Days quilt show is titled: “Quilting in the Shadow of the Monument- Then and Now.”
This year’s show will be themed: “Happy 100th to Scotts Bluff National Monument.” Each entry must have at least one pieced quilt block associated with the Oregon Trail or pioneer quilts and include ‘100’ somewhere in the quilt, either the number 100 or 100 pieces embellished, quilted or embroidered.
This year, the Quilt Show will take place at Lincoln Elementary School, 1725 13th Street in Gering. The show is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is free to the public.
