As part of commemorating Missouri's bicentennial this year, a quilt comprised of squares from each county has been created. At Tappmeyer Homestead, we're celebrating 100 years of quilting, 1840-1940, with a program linking our history and quilt designs. Did you ever think of a quilt as a history lesson? What do quilts tell us about the life and times when they were created? "Historic Missouri Quilts and their Makers" will be presented at 2 p.m. August 22 by Suellen and Richard Meyer. Even if your connection is mainly with their snuggle factor, learn about history's influence on the magical colors and shapes sewn into quilts. The program is free but reservations are required. Email An exhibit, "Kitchen Culture that includes a display of vintage aprons, is free in the home on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in August and September, noon - 4 p.m.
