Chisholm Trail Museum to Host Popular Barn Quilt Workshops in July

KINGFISHER, Okla. — The Chisholm Trail Museum will hold two of its popular barn quilt workshops on Friday, July 21, and Saturday, July 22, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Barn quilts are square-shaped boards painted to resemble a quilt block and then put on buildings. They’ve evolved into a rural development initiative to boost tourism in communities. Participants will make a barn quilt to take home. Oklahoma State University Extension educator Lindy Hoel will lead both workshops.

Registration is required. Classes are limited to 24 people. The cost is $50, and it includes lunch. The workshops are for adults or teens attending with an adult. Call the museum at 405-375-5176 to register. The Chisholm Trail Museum is located at 605 Zellers Ave. in Kingfisher.
