The quilt for this year's Carstens Farm Quilt Show was a tribute to the 10th anniversary of 9-11.
The blocks of the quilt were designed with the colors of the American flag, with the center block being a picture of the entrance gates at Carstens Farm.
The blocks of the quilt were donated by:
Emma Caroline McLaughlin
Carol Von Eschen
The winner of the 2011 Carstens Farm Quilt was:
Dwight ("Bubba") Gosler of Ute, Iowa
Many, many thanks to all of those who donated blocks to make this quilt possible. Your generosity is a great tribute to Carstens Farm.
To Jan Hursey and Marilyn Evans, we could never adequately express our appeciation for the countless hours that you put into organizing the Quilt Show, collecting the quilt blocks, piecing and handquilting the quilt, hanging the quilts and being at the Farm Show to oversee the entire Quilt Show event. You are, without doubt, gems of the best kind!
Our appreciation also goes to everyone who participated in the Quilt Show in any way.
