Quilting the Prairie


“Quilting the prairie” is a project to promote tourism to the Belview area.

As long as we can remember quilting has been a part of our American heritage no more so than in the prairie land of western Minnesota. Along with quilts keeping us warm, they were and are a beautiful piece of art work.

We plan to quilt the prairie by placing quilt squares on as many barns in the Belview area as we can. Join in and celebrate our heritage and promote tourism.

Quilt squares are an 8 foot by 8 foot piece of plywood painted to look like a quilt square.

This is how it works.

1.  We can design and build a quilt square for you.

2.  You can pick the design and colors for your quilt square, and we will build it for you.

3.  You can design and build your own quilt square.

The cost of an 8’ by 8’ quilt square is $140.00

There are plans to create a calendar featuring the first twelve quilt squares.

For information on how to purchase one for your barn or to help make these beautiful quilt squares contact Bonnie Marhoun at
