Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Indiana Bicentennial Quilt Challenge Indiana Bicentennial Quilt Challenge

All participants will create a quilted wall hanging depicting Indiana from 1816 to the present to celebrate Indiana’s Bicentennial. Rural and urban areas are represented, as well as symbols such as the state tree, flower, bird and flag. The wall hangings will be on display at quilt guild meetings and our quilt show, as well as at other venues.
