This 2ft x 2ft barn quilt, designed and painted by Lola, stands for the years Al served in the United States Marine Corps, the past they had, and the future they share together with trust, integrity, and honor. Semper Fi.
The Norwegian Flag design was chosen to honor the family heritage as Robert and Peggy's grandparents came from Norway.
The block pattern was selected after much searching online for the "right" square. We wanted to incorporate the Swiss flag into the block. We named the block "Swiss Family Ubersox" to honor our Swiss descendants. The block was a Mother's Day gift in 2010 from daughter Sara and her husband, John Gleason. John's sister, Julie Anderson of Scales Mound, IL painted the block.
The barn quilt design was chosen because their grandmother made a double wedding band quilt for them when they got married in 1971.
