Kim & Bill Rand – It's Better in Person

Kim & Bill Rand

This farm has been in the family for over 100 years – five generations – and continues to serve as managed pine forest. The owner’s grandmother, Ora, was a functional quilter who created quilts from scraps of curtains, clothes and other linens to keep her children and grandchildren warm. The square pattern was chosen to honor Ora by replicating a star quilt created by her and by using her favorite color, purple. Although renovated, the barn has been standing as long as living memory.
