Thank You to Alliant Energy!

I do believe that the guys from Alliant Energy are my new best friends.  They have graciously helped mount 11 new quilt blocks for us again this year.  Without the use of their boom trucks and equipment, we’d be lost!  Yesterday, July 17, we managed to put up 6 new blocks around the county before the heavy rains set in.  Plans were to have them return again today to put up the final 5, but because the rain was so torrential, power lines, etc. were damaged and Alliant had to take care of that business.  Hopefully they will be back to help on Monday, July 21.  They really seem to make this job look easy!  Here are a couple pictures of the blocks we put up yesterday.  Do you like the new additions to the Barn Quilt Project?  More pictures will come next week after the final 5 are put up!
