Pioneer Bluffs Hosts Prairie Talk Near Matfield Green;
"Exploring The Kansas Flint Hills Quilt Trail" Program
Sue Hageman, representing the Kansas Flint Hills Quilt Trail, and nationally known barn quilt block artist, presented the program at the Pioneer Bluffs historical barn on Saturday afternoon, August 4th. The "Prairie Talk" program was attended by 40 promising barn quilt enthusiasts. Pioneer Bluffs was a perfect location to discuss barn quilts with their Pioneer Star quilt block displayed on the historical 1800's barn. Pioneer Bluff's quilt block, created by Elaine Jones and Susan Hague, quickly joined the Kansas Flint Hills Quilt Trail efforts. Connie Larson, also a Kansas Flint Hills Quilt Trail committee member, and President of Ag Heritage Park in Alta Vista, that also proudly displays a pair of quilt blocks that are part of the Quilt Trail, assisted Sue in the program. Pioneer Bluffs executive director, Lynn Smith, graciously promoted the event.
