Our quilt block was painted as part of the Schoharie Quilt Barn Trail. “Simply Ewe” was designed especially for Hessian Hill Farm and our Southdown sheep by Jen Marshall.
About the Quilt Barn Trail
The Schoharie County Quilt Barn Trail emerged as an outcome of the devastating floods of August, 2011, caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. It celebrates the unexpectedness of art on a building or wall instead of a gallery.
The quilt blocks are honest, authentic, spirited, creative and most of all accessible. People relate to the quilting of ancestors, relatives, friends and themselves.
There are currently 82 quilt blocks throughout the county including Hessian Hill. You can see the full map of locations at quiltbarntrail.com.
Thanks to Donna Sue Groves, founder of the American Quilt Barn Trail, the Schoharie County Quilt Barn Trail has become part of The American Quilt Trail!
