Pawnee Bill Ranch to Host Quilt Show
Pawnee, Okla. — During the month of October, the Pawnee Bill Ranch will host a quilt show in the museum. Area quilters will bring in their handiwork to be exhibited during the museum’s normal hours of operation. Everything from historic family heirlooms to modern abstract works of art will be on display.
The quilt show, an annual event at the ranch for more than 20 years, is a way for community members to show off their beautiful works of fiber art. People have shared quilts that date back to the land runs, Civil War era quilts, friendship quilts and modern quilts that tell a story or that have patterns reflecting a theme. The ranch has many quilts in its collection that can be seen during the quilt show in Pawnee Bill’s mansion. The event is free.
For more information, please call 918-762-2513. The Pawnee Bill Ranch is located one-half mile west of Pawnee on U.S. Highway 64.
