Quilt Block: Sunflower

This old barn has been in the Vukonich Family since 1929.  Once a dairy barn that was also used for hay storage, this old barn has seen a lot of history in the area. The barn and house across the street, were also used in the filming of the popular television series, Northern Exposure.

Mary Stimach Vukonich, the family matriarch grew sunflowers in her large vegetable garden that were taller than the chicken coop.  This sunflower quilt block was chosen at her children’s and grandchildren’s request because of that fond memory.
