Mick & Harriet Whitfield Clayton
This farm has been in the Whitfield family since the mid nineteenth century through five generations. The quilt square is hung on an old barn originally built in the late 1800’s to house hay, mules and other farm animals. It was later converted into an active chicken house throughout the 1950’ and 1960’s. Their quilt square pattern is in honor of the owner’s father who raised chickens and corn, as well as sunflowers to encourage pollinators.
