Additional Activities


Spring Migration West Quilt (West)

Eleven Western Nebraska shops have joined together to offer Shop Hop participants the chance to make a fun quilt. Participants visiting these stores will receive a free instruction sheet for a 60” row at each shop. Adding the Wild About Nebraska Border strips in between will create a quilt that is ready to bind or border. Kits for the rows in coordinating colors will be available at each shop. 

Migrate west and harvest instructions and kits for your very own Spring Migration West row-by-row quilt.
