The first quilt trail across the border to our north is now a reality!
The blocks along this trail are part of Wardsville's Bicentennial Celebration; the project is now officially underway with the creation of the first quilt in the sampler that will tell the story of community founder George Ward.
Denise Corneil of Wardsville has been one of those hard at work getting the project off the ground.
Denise explains the meaning behind this strikingly beautiful creation. "The Farmer's Wife: Margaret Ward is in honor of all of the women who worked and toiled by their husbands' side to settle this great land. Working with little complaint and never able to tell their story. We honor them."
The spirit of the quilt trail lives in Wardsville; I hope to visit in June when the entire sampler is complete. I can even take Gracie, the quilt trail pup--how cool is that?
