“Richmond Barns” challenge issued to celebrate heritage with quilts

Installing the new barn quilt on the dining hall!

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]Members of the Richmond Agricultural Society have “quilted” the Dinning Hall with their first barn quilt and are encouraging more barn owners to create them for “Richmond Barns”.  Owners taking up the challenge have a great opportunity to make a visual statement about the rural heritage of our community.

This barn quilt is to celebrate the loyalist settlers of Richmond … red and grey for the uniforms, yellow and green for the fields of corn and blue for the Mighty Jock River.  So, the challenge is out for other barns around Richmond to get “quilted”!

The design and colours were selected with the assistance of Laura Boyd, made and donated to Richmond Fair Homecraft by Peter and Alison Tranter.

Thanks to Marg and Rick Todd for help with the installation and to Dale Green on the tractor!
