About the quilts:

Both are 4×4-feet and were designed and painted by the owner, Larry Janke. The one on the front of his garage/machine shop is a patriotic theme. Mr. Janke is not a veteran, but is very patriotic.

The north side of the garage sports a second barn quilt, Carpenter’s Star, which he also painted.

A third barn quilt, depicting major events/attractions in the Geneva area, is planned for the peak of his garage.
