Be part of creating a barn quilt block!

Wakefield will soon be alive with color and design through a Barn Quilt block project organized by Chris Yenni, a Wakefield City Council member. Currently, 10 quilt blocks are planned for display on various buildings in Wakefield.

As you travel throughout the Kansas Flint Hills and across the country, you might see bright, beautiful and interesting 4×4 blocks displayed on barns, businesses, fences, and homes. Originally started as a project to honor an Ohio woman’s mother, it grew into a series of quilts designed to guide visitors through her county.

Our blocks will be included on the Kansas Flint Hills Quilt Trail. Formed to celebrate agricultural heritage, preserve agricultural history and culture, and as well as promote agritourism and rural pride, the Quilt Trail winds through 22 counties from as far south as Cowley to Washington in the north end of the state.

Contact Chris Yenni at 405-637-6107 or at or the Museum if you wish to be included in this project. The dates are Saturday, April 11th & 18th at 9 a.m. both days. Materials will be supplied.
