Patrick County Barn Quilt Trail

Tree of Life Barn Quilt at Poppy's in Meadows of Dan
Poppy's  is proud to be on the Patrick County Barn Quilt Trail. There are over 40 locations on the trail and at least 4 barn quilts at shops right here in Meadows of Dan. Come into the shop to get a list or at least be on the lookout as you travel around the county.

I took a class sponsored by the Reynolds Homestead to make this barn quilt. The class was delightful and we had so much fun. It was wonderful to see all the different designs and exciting to know that we'd be a part of the larger trail. So many people have come in already to look at the barn quilts in the area. Right now I'm working on a crocheted version of a barn quilt to put on a wall inside the shop.
