Quilts on Barns - #93 LaMoyne Star

The LaMoyne Star is located at N7190 Highway 69 in Monticello WI.  The barn has quite a history:



This farm has been part of the Voegeli family's history since 1854. The farm was purchased by Jost Voegeli, a Swiss immgrant, in 1854. There was already a barn on the land when it was purchased, but that was leveled and the Ralph Brothers from Monticello helped rebuiled a new barn because the first one was inconvenient.  The current barn was built in 1918.
This barn has always been used as a dairy barn.  Bryan and Jim Voegeli represent the 5th generation of Voegeli's to farm here.

These look a little bit challenging for piecing, but I'm sure you'll find a way.
