Nine Holes in the Barn Door Square at Miller Orchards


The quilt barn square is located at Miller Orchards on Vermilion Rd. This quilt is made from color variations of a nine patch Jacob’s Ladder pattern. Some of these patterns were intentionally imperfect. Quilters felt that a perfect quilt was an affront to the almighty and a sign of sinful pride. Therefore, a block or blocks were made with a piece was misplaced on purpose that was commonly called a “humility” block. It was painted by the Homegrowers 4-H Club and installed by First Energy.
