50 States Barn Quilt

50 States Barn Quilt Display

50 States Barn Quilt Display

Cozad Chamber of Commerce Tourism commissioned a 50 State Barn Quilt Display in Cozad. This is a unique community art installation located near the corner of 7th and Meridian in downtown cozad, Nebraska. 

The display is 6’ x 50’ with all 50 states represented.  Each state has an official quilt block, much like a state bird or flower designation that we will be using.  Block designs were used from the United States Patchwork Pattern Book: 50 Quilt Blocks from 50 States from Hearth and Home Magazine, with permission by Dover Publications.

Rose Mapel of Rustic Milling & Craft, LLC was commissioned to paint the barn quilt blocks for the project to maintain uniformity in color and design. The display is located near the corner of 7th and Meridian in downtown Cozad, Nebraska, on the side of the Mead Lumber storage building, across the street from Bella Italia restaurant.

The Cozad Tourism committee is requesting sponsorships to help support this project. The initial expenses have been funded by the Tourism Committee through lodging tax dollars. It is our hope that this one-of-a-kind piece of art will draw tourists to the area to see their state’s block. Sponsorships for each of the 50 state blocks are $200.00. This includes the cost of having the 2’x 3’ block commissioned and painted as well as contributing for installation and maintenance costs.  Download your sponsorship form here.

We’d love to have you help us celebrate this exciting showpiece which is sure to capture a positive first impression to visitors to our community.
