Hazel's Memory Quilt

Driving through Roane County, West Virginia, at anything above 35 miles per hour is treacherous--miles of hills and steep curves and winding roads with little respite. As I was concentrating on navigating safely, this barn was hardly a blur as we whizzed by. The barn itself isn't much of an attention grabber, but something made me turn back.

How sweet is this? An old time quilting tradition, recreated with paint. What a great family tribute.


  1. And I came within seconds of passing it by because the barn was set back from the road and didn't look like much. You never know.

  2. I painted this for my Mother Sandy Tawney Gray... The barn and quilt square did not survive a fire. I was looking for a picture of the quilt square and found this...Thank you so much for turning around..
