Hibbs’ Quilt Block Chosen

December 10, 2019

Barbara Hibbs of Center was recently notified that the quilt block she submitted for the Missouri State Bicentennial Quilt was selected to represent Ralls County. Hibbs used yellow and green to represent corn and beans and the blue to represent Mark Twain Lake and Salt River.
“Ralls County is a farming community, so I chose a variation on the Corn and Beans block,” said Hibbs.
Hibbs started quilting in 2016 and meets weekly at Olivet Christian Church to work with other quilters on various quilting projects. There was no prize awarded to those chosen to have their blocks sewn into the state’s bicentennial quilt. “No prize,” she said, “just fun to do and neat to be chosen.”
