Jan Hursey and Marilyn Evans put many hours into the whole process. After the decision is made as to what quilt will be made, the pattern is sent to anyone interested in donating a block.
Once the blocks are returned, Jan and Marilyn piece the blocks together and spend hours beautifully hand-quilting it. The end result is always a work of art.
Many thanks to those who donated a block, for without you, this project would not be possible:
Emma Caroline McLaughlin
Dee Dee Schoening
We also wanted to give a shout out to the crew that helped Jan and Marilyn wrap the quilts in plastic to protect them and then hang them in the quilt shed, all the while cheerfully providing much comedy relief: Duane Hursey, Craig Constable, Amy Hursey, Del & Carol Von Eschen, Leona Barker and Jim & Ann Podraza.
And, finally, a HUGE heartfelt thank you to Jan and Marilyn for all of their hard work on this project. You ladies are the definition of AWESOME!
The winner of the 2015 Carstens Farm Day Quilt was Marg Robinson of Shelby, Iowa. Thanks to everyone who supported this project.
