HWY 20 Barn Quilt Trail: Stitching communities together through arts, culture & heritage.
Join us in Silton, Strasbourg and Nokomis as each community will host an individual "Barn Quilt" session. You can choose to complete the quilt onsite with artists and volunteers, or take home the supplies and create the barn quilt at home.
Each host community will be posting details on their FaceBook pages including times and locations.
Barn Quilts are large painted wooden replicas of quilt squares that are hung on barns and large outbuildings. Barn quilts draw attention to Saskatchewan’s both disappearing and vibrant rural landscapes. Quilting is an art. The quit itself evokes both physical and emotional warmth in the memories of quilts from the past and present.
Community Coordinators in Nokomis, Strasbourg and Silton will prepare quilt block kits on a variety of pre-finished boards. Participants will be able to paint the quilt block on site or take home to work on.
We hope to not only capture the beauty of the quilts on the trail, but also the stories to go along with the barns and buildings the quilt blocks will occupy. We want to link the communities through art, meeting and sharing with neighbours, visiting other communities, and reminiscing of past drives and events down Highway 20.
