Another Quilt Block Arrival

I was told this morning that a new quilt block had popped up!  I have been waiting on this block as the family had plans on painting it and mounting it themselves.  So I’ve been waiting for the good word.  It is now up for all to see in the glorious frigid Iowa weather. 
This block is titled “County Fair Variation” and is on the Ron & Eileen Flater farmstead.  Their son and daughter-in-law in Ohio contacted me over a year ago asking about having a barn quilt.  They had plans of building & painting the block in Ohio and bringing it home when they visited.  The large block traveled to Iowa in December and made its arrival for Christmas.  If you are familiar with our blocks and their names, you’ll notice that we already have “County Fair.”  Yes, we do, but the Flater family was insistent that we allow them to have that name because the fair and 4-H means a great deal to the entire family.  So it is called “variation” just to clarify between the two blocks.

Welcome to the Loop, “County Fair Variation!”
