The story

I purchased my farm from my Uncle in 1968. He bought it in 1927. In 1974, we built a new house and have been living there ever since. The inspiration for my barn quilt came from my Mom’s love of quilting. My sister had a large selection of my Mom’s quilt patterns so she and I looked through them and chose a pattern that my Mom had made as a sampler. I wanted brighter colours so I contacted my daughter and she chose the red, yellow and blue. I then gathered boards, patterns, paint and completed my quilt in the basement. Thanks to Hayter’s Turkeys for the installation of the barn quilt on the barn wall.
