Indian Valley Record i Barn quilts go Wednesday, July6 2Oll 5A new lengths The Mohawk Valley Artists Guild finished its latest artist creation just in time for the Fourth of July festivities in BlaiTsden and Graeagle. Eleven quilt square patterns now adorn the fe belonging to Anderson's Garden Center on the road into Blairsden, causing motorists to take a second, delighted look. The Guild became interested in painted renditions of quilting designs t years ago when member Rosemarie Mucklin received a photo album of pictures of the Quilt on Barns Project in Green County, Wis., from her, sister-in-law who lived there. The Guild becamen t Ihu 5iastic about adapting the project for Graeagle and scaled down the size of the quilt square patterns from barn-sized to a size' that would fit on the little red houses along Graeagle's mai stzr-e-t. The Outpost at the Millpond has two such quilt square patterns and Eco Centric has one, with a fourth on a private residence in Graeagle. The Blairsden squares were painted by Maim Haiti, Jim Harper, Nilda Scott and her son Ryan (a high school student), Karen Machin and her daughter Emma (an elementary student), Dee Kelly, Jennifer Lacy, Jan Harston, Susan Wilson, Cable Ha I e and Jane Melicker. Mike and Heather Anderson donated the space for the public art and Mt. Hardware in Blairsden helped with supplies for the project. President Marian Haid is hoping e Gi ui I d will continue to expand the project throughout the Mohawk area. Quilts on barns have become enormously popular across the country in recent years.
