Blazing star Duo

Garth Schmidt’s centennial farm boasts two quilt blocks. Both are the same design, taken from a quilt made by  Matilda Gaedcke in approximately 1930.  She was the grandmother of Garth’s late wife Elvera Schmidt.

The large block was part of a grant by Great Lakes Energy People Fund,


and the family purchased the smaller one to place where Mr. Schmidt, who is in his 90’s could see it from the house.
