"Kansas Sunflower"
Judy & Larry Sorenson, 547 Flag Rd, Hope KS 67451
This shop on the Sorenson property was originally a chicken house, home to 300 laying hens,
where Judy's mother raised chickens and sold eggs. This building, like most in their day, had
a straw loft that had chicken wire attached to the rafters and then filled with straw, serving as
insulation. Using the building for storage, Larry and Judy removed the straw loft, enduring
dirt and dust, as well as "other things" such as black snake skins. In 2015 Larry decided to
turn this building in to his shop so he could work on his antique tractor restoration projects.
Larry did extensive work on the building, including installing new windows.
This old building getting new life provided a place for Judy to display her new sunflower block.
The "Kansas Sunflower" block was added to the shop August, 2016.

Judy & Larry Sorenson, 547 Flag Rd, Hope KS 67451
Artist: Connie Larson
Judy's rest of the story: Each spring and fall, the Ag Heritage Park at Alta Vista, Kansas,
holds a day of fun and activities. We enjoy going to the Park, visiting with friends and
viewing the exhibits, and seeing the antique tractor show. A barn quilt is given away
each event. Each time I buy tickets - each time I do not win. Spring 2017 was no
exception, we bought tickets, went to the tractor show, visited, had a great lunch, and
viewed the exhibits. The block was done in bright colors, and just beautiful - I wanted
to win soooooo bad! This time I WON! The block shares space on the shed at our farm
with another barn quilt as I was bitten by the barn quilt bug several years ago - just
love this block.

"Star Within A Star Variation"
Harlan & Peggy Janke, 1954 Union Road, Chapman KS 67431
Notice 2 x 2 barn blocks displayed on the barn to the right, front.
Chester C. Janke purchased the ground with only a windmill standing in 1929.
Building the farm during the depression, he built a barn with a straw roof.
Chester's dream was to have a dairy farm. With limestone quarried from a hill
near by the farm, it took 3 years to complete the barn in 1945. In 1949 a
tornado ripped through taking off the top and it was rebuilt. Another storm in
1969, a 100 mph straight wind destroyed the hay storage part of the barn and the
barn was rebuilt again. Another barn was built to accommodate a bulk tank and
milking parlor in 1960. At this time Harlan came home from college to go in to
partnership with his father. Chester retired in 1974 and Harlan continued
milking in this barn until 1993.

Located on a stand alone sign across the railroad tracks, facing towards the south, this farm land has agricultural historical significance in Dickinson County. This quilt block named after Deanna Munson's parents identifies the location where the Munson family has farmed for six generations. This land was purchased and farmed for over fifty years by Munson's. Many farm meals have been served in the tree area toward the middle of this land as recent as 2013 before Munson's Prime, the restaurant, located at 426 Goldenbelt Blvd, Junction City, KS, which also features this same quilt block in Geary County. Over 50 years ago, a farm home owned by the Fluker family stood in the the tree area to the south. It accidentally burned down. The middle section of this land was owned for many years by Mr. John Bischoff who was an entrepreneur and inventor of unique farming practices. At one time, he requested Deanna Munson bring him many yards of nylon net from a fabric store for an invention he had designed to separate a unique grass seed that was not normally grown in Kansas with a machine he had invented. Upon his death, his portion of land was purchased by the Munson's.

This machine shed was built in 1970 on property that has been in the family for 70 years.
Katie writes, "My Mom wanted to make me a barn quilt for my birthday in 2014. When
she asked me what style I wanted I told her that there was one in Abilene that was similar
to this one and I liked it because it reminded me of the inside stars of a combine reel.
My Mom had gathered information, paint, material and had taken a class where she made
a small one for her garage. In January 2017 Mom was diagnosed with cancer in her brain
and has undergone a lot over the last few months. In about June Mom contacted our
friends and neighbors, Larry and Judy Sorenson, that have a lot of experience with barn
quilts about wanting to get this done for me. Larry and Judy obtained the supplies from
Mom and took care of the entire thing for her. This quilt is a birthday present from my
Mother, made by friends, for her and for me. And that makes it really special to me.

The Grenola Elevator was built in 1909 from sturdy hardwood timbers and equipped with the latest milling equipment of the time. For many years it was the economic center of Grenola. In 1989 after the business had been closed for several years, the Grenola Historical Society was able to purchase the building and it was converted into a historical museum. In the storerooms of the elevator are displayed many of the tools, household goods, wagons, buggies, and other articles used by our ancestors back to the beginning of the community.

Clubine Ranch, Dale & Barbara Clubine, 1344 Flint, Moline KS 67353
The Clubine Ranch started in 1963. Dale and Barbara raised hogs, cattle, wheat, soybeans, milo and hay that provided the means to build all buildings and improvements that now stand. In the later years they only raised cattle and hay. The large bell in the front yard was from the old Wildcat School House. All eight of Dale's brothers and sisters attended Wildcat School. Dale and Barbara's sons, Brian and Darrin, attended 4-H meetings in that school building. Some building material for the house (which was finished in 1974) came from the Burden School and the Palace Hotel in Moline.

The Santa Fe Depot is the community museum of railroad, community and 
farming, oil and cattle history of the area. The railroad was a very important
connection for any community int he late 1800's. Folks traveled, sent cattle
to market, sold eggs and cream at the tran station. Most of the freight that was
delivered to the area came by rail as at times the roads were impassable.
Children enjoy "looking back" at the history displays of the area in the 
depot museum.

There was on old shop on the foundation, but was dismantled because of age. We rebuilt the shop and added a lean-to on the East and South ends. The barn is a wood structure with metal siding.There is a very large 2 story home on the property that was built in 1925. In 1976 the house was moved 25 yards South onto a new foundation that was higher and out of the flood plane. The woodwork in the house is mostly original with fancy scroll work that is just beautiful. The McGinn family has lived in this area for over 125 years, and Chis grew up less than a mile from here. Chris and I were married in 2009 and love farm life, raising cattle, showing pigs, and we have horses. I love Quilting and K State (lots of family graduated or attended), so my daughter made the block for my birthday this year.
