On our way to the annual Baker Reunion in New York state, we decided to take a new route and stop to visit friends on the way. We were heading toward Lansing, Michigan and found out there was a quilt trail on the way.
|This one is called "Pure Michigan Maple".|
The couple that own the "barn on Kalamazoo Avenue", make maple syrup. This was a great choice for their block.
|A closeup of the block.|
This western style barn was built in 1881 using nearby materials. It has a gable roofline.
|Look closely at the block. The challenge of painting it to look like real fabric went to the local high school art students.|
Everyone signed the block
This is a replication of a ladies great grandmother's late 1800 quilt.
This block was popular with the women of the temperance movement.
They urged abstinence from all spirits.
