The fan pattern was chosen from an actual quilt Jo's grandmother had
made. The colors used were the same colors used in the real quilt. Jo's
grandmother made the quilt using fabric from dresses she had made for
herself.  From the time her grandmother was sick, this quilt was used on
her bed up until she passed away.
The barn was built about fifteen years ago. Since the family had horses
at that time, it was used for them and also as a place for stripping
