During the pioneer settlement of Nebraska, homesteaders learned how to “make do” with what they had.  The women of the family would take scraps of cloth and cut them apart to make quilts.
     This Nebraska heart depicts many aspects of the patchwork quilt.  Patchwork quilts show many colors and patterns.  Also this “patchwork” quilt shows many different types of quilt block patterns used to create pieced quilts.
     This heart will be completed by the Broken Bow Art Club and is under the directorship of Roberta Barnes, 7-12 Art Teacher at Broken Bow Public Schools.
