Red Power Round Up Highlights Quilting Talent

Sep 29, 2010

The 21st annual national Red Power Roundup took place June 24 to 26 in LaPorte, Ind. In conjunction with the event, a Case IH "Red Tractor" quilting contest was held.

The quilts celebrated the Case IH and International Harvester history.

100 3021The winning entry was a sister partnership of Evie Schlief from Glenwood, Minn. and Ceci Loch from Gordon, Wis. As winners they received the $1,000 prize. Their entry was "A Man on his Tractor," a 78" by 92" quilt featuring fussy-cut patterned panels of vintage International Harvester tractors in farmyard settings with the historic "Red Driver I" inlaid in the sashing throughout the quilt.

The sisters are both members of the #26 Minn-Dak Red Power chapter, and Schlief says they've used Case IH equipment on their farm for more than 36 years.

Schlief's grandsons, ages three and six, were involved in the the quilt making. After the Roundup, the quilt went to the county fair, and it's now on display in Schlief's spare bedroom. She says when her grandson gets older, she's going to give him the quilt.
