“Barn” Quilt Block

The Star Valley Quilt Trail is challenging the residents of the Star Valley to join other Wyoming cities to put this valley on the Wyoming Quilt Trail map by hosting a “barn” quilt block contest! Win cash prizes!

Valley residents and visitors to the Star Valley will enjoy these pieces of art for many years to come. It is important that “barn” quilt blocks be able to withstand the elements, sustain their beauty and be maintained when necessary.

Paint a quilt block(s) on a sheet of wood and install it on your barn, home, business, outbuilding, or shed. Position it so the quilt block can be viewed from a road.

The minimum size “barn” quilt block to qualify for judging and prizes is 4’ x 4’ (4 feet by 4 feet) – there is no maximum size.

You must enter the contest in order to have your “barn” quilt block judged for the chance of winning a prize! Prizes awarded July 2020.

1st Prize: $1,500.00!
2nd Prize: $1,000.00!
3rd Prize: $750.00!
Star Valley Quilt Trail Prize: $1,000.00!

Entry forms are available at town halls in Afton, Thayne, Star Valley Ranch and Alpine. Also available at Jenny M’s, Afton, and Beyond Bolts, Thayne.

Deadlines: Entry Forms must be submitted no later than June 1, 2020, with your “barn” quilt block(s) completed and installed by July 1, 2020.
