See the Byway the Quilt Way

All quilters and quilt lovers are invited to view a grand array of timeless, unique quilts along The Outlaw Trail between Valentine and South Sioux City. This annual event is a treasured experience enjoyed by many travelers along the 231 mile route packed with over 20 displays with 3 wonderful quilting speakers. Watch for quilt signage along the complete route. You can also enjoy the fall foliage and test your culinary appetite with the local cuisines along the way.

Visit each location for only $1.00 and enjoy the speaker presentations for just $3.00 each, at the door. Also, be sure to pickup a FREE quilt block at each quilt display location, to assemble your very own 2011 “Quiltway” masterpiece.

Cheri Wood will be our featured speaker for the Byway event at on Friday October 7th at 5pm. With over 20 years of quilting experience, Cheri has always been curious about the why and for whom a quilt has been made and the story behind them. So after reading about the civil war quilts and the underground railroad, she wanted to learn more about the secret messages in the form of quilt patterns that aided the slaves escaping from captivity during those times. Learn more about her discoveries!!!
