HPLD Joins Barn Quilt Heritage Trail of McLean County

wp-1462996831099.jpg

The Heyworth Public Library District celebrated our past by connecting with the Barn Quilt Heritage Trail of McLean County. The library’s inclusion in this countywide effort with a Railroad Crossing quilt pattern block was a perfect way to tie our agricultural and railroad history to the 75th birthday of the library. The library unveiled the quilt block on the library’s birthday, May 19, 2016.  Reid Young, Program Coordinator, Local Food Systems and Small Farms at the University of Illinois Extension was on hand to answer questions and field interest in the Barn Quilt Heritage Trail of McLean County .

Local quilter, Kim Travers, wrote out instructions to replicate the Railroad Crossing quilt block.  They can be found by clicking the link below.
