Barn Quilts of Pender (Ne)

I recently drove over to Pender, Nebraska to look at their barn quilts.  It was amazing!  They have over 200 barn quilts with almost 150 within the town!
Pender has a population of around 1100, so that is a lot of barn quilts.  Most of the barn quilts were mounted on posts in people's front yards.  All of the barn quilts have a "quilts of Pender 125" mounted next to them as you can see in this picture.  This sign also has the name of the quilt block.  This one is called Thistle Bloom and is found in front of a florist shop.   All of these barn quilts were done in honor of Pender's 125th celebration this summer.  If you are looking for a fun Sunday afternoon drive, Pender is the place to go!
