Another quilt block was added to the Missaukee/Wexford “Quilt Trail” this past Saturday at Beth and Kenneth Zuiderveens’ on
7-Mile Road in Missaukee County. The farm has been in the family for 97 years! The block was hung on the barn that was originally owned by Rula and Roy Tacoma Ken’s grandparents. The block that Ken and Beth decided on was “Grandma’s Fan” which represents Grandma Beth and Ken’s 5 grandchildren McKenna, Levi, Enoch, Cayden and Logan; each color in the fan of the block is their grand children’s favorite color!
Grandchildren pictured are McKenna and Levi Jenema; 5th generation in the family; they really were excited to see the block go up and talked about the color they liked in the Grandma’s Fan block.
“It has been very exciting the past couple years watching our Quilt Trail grow!” remarked Ellen Vanderwal. We have about 25 blocks on our quilt trail. Elsie Vredenburg paints the blocks for the Missaukee / Wexford Quilt Trail. If you are interested in having a quilt block please contact Elsie Vredenburg 231-825-2572 or Ellen Vanderwal 231-328-4432.
