54-40 or Fight

Our second block went up on a barn owned by Doug and Melaine Wirth. The design is an old one, taken from a 19th century political slogan, 54-40 or Fight. Doug’s mother, Esther, made them a quilt with this block in it. One of the things our committee likes to do is link the quilt block design to a quilt in the family, or something significant to the barn owner. This is our “signature” barn, having appeared in several publications.  Located at 8044 Nine Mile Rd., Evart, MI.
