Star of Many Points.

Patriotic Star block was just added to the trail on Aug. 7, 2015. 
This one is at Gleason Gardens, 6360 Minter Bridge Road, Hillsboro.

The Strawberry Block for the Dixie Mtn. Grange is ready!

There it is!  Installed at the Dixie Mtn Grange. All of those people were
enjoying the annual Strawberry Festival, with fresh strawberries,
real whipped cream and either a biscuit or cake.  Yum! 
See this block at 23455 NW Dixie Mtn. Rd, N. Plains, Oregon.

That's high!  Installation of the Jossy Farm
block using really TALL ladders!

Block #6 on the trail went up on June 8, 2015.  This old barn is on the Jossy Farm, 31965 NW Beach Road, Hillsboro.
Bob Jossy wanted a tree block; and this farm has wonderful peach, apple and pear orchards.

Up close photo of this great tree block.

We wrote on the back of the block information for posterity.

Westside Quilters Guild members celebrating the installation of this first block at the Simpson Century Farm, 31535 SW Simpson Road.  This block is called "Hovering Hawks" and was one block made by women crossing the Oregon Trail.

Celebrating the installation of the next block on the trail were members
 of the WQG and the Gates and Ferguson families.
This one is on the Gates Century Farm, 32720 NW Hornecker Rd, Hillsboro. 
The block, Grandmother's Fan, is taken from a heritage quilt
made by Minnie Gordon Gates in 1932.

Getting ready to add the third block on the trail to the
Jessie Mays Community Center, 30975 NW Hillcrest St. 
in North Plains.  This block, a variation of a log cabin,
was a favorite of Roni Andrews,
a charter member of the Westside Quilters Guild.

Moving it up higher!

Roni and Jim Andrews were very active in the North Plains community.  This plaque was placed on thebuilding as a remembrance to them.

Family and friends of Jim and Roni Andrews came to watch the installation, as well as members of the WQG.  This block went up on March 26, 2015.



  1. I'm unable to locate the Unger Farm quilt barn even asking several neighbors. Is the address correct? Thx

  2. The Unger Farm block in on a barn on the south side of Unger Rd, just east of where Riedweg Rd meets Unger. It is not at the Unger Farm Store.
