traditional Biblical quilt pattern for their square. It sits beside the

State Sport, is celebrated annually at their Jousting Tournament and

were added by the team of Mel Gallipeau, Graphic/Media Designer, Calvert
Marine Museum, James C. Crane, Curator of Exhibits, Calvert Marine
Museum, and Correine Moore, Administrative Assistant, Chesapeake Beach

February 14, 2019 - The Arts Council of Calvert County is pleased to
announce the ninth installation on the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail. The
Friends of Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum have chosen Maryland's
State flower, the Black Eyed Susan, as the design to adorn the Visitor
Center Barn. In 1893, Mary Marvin Breckinridge Patterson
donated one of the most important archaeological properties in the the
Chesapeake Bay region. At the time, it was the largest private donation
of a historical property ever made to the state of Maryland. Her gift
created Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum. Today, it is a 560-acre
working farm devoted to telling the story of the archaeology and history
of the Chesapeake region, and to protecting the fast-disappearing rural
environment of Southern Maryland.
August 10, 2018 - Arts Council's Barn Quilt Trail adds three new pieces (by MICHAEL REID firstname.lastname@example.org )
April 20, 2018 - Three new squares were installed in North Beach.
square is the Maple Leaf, which will reside at Chesapeake's Bounty, 9124
Bay Avenue, North Beach, MD. The classic Maple Leaf quilt design
is a perfect fit for Chesapeake's Bounty. Chosen and painted by Veronica
Cristo of Chesapeake's Bounty, the Maple Leaf reminds us that trees help
as we know it. Veronica and Will Kreamer, founder of Chesapeake's Bounty
and a third generation farmer, believe in the health and economic
benefits of local food, supporting local farmers, watermen, and other
producers and paying fair market prices for their products. The new
North Beach Market is an ideal complement to their local food system
vision in that it brings local food from throughout the Chesapeake Bay
Watershed right to the doorstep of the community.
The second square is Trip Around the World, which will reside at The Wheel Store, 4109 7th St., North Beach, MD. The Trip Around the World quilt block hanging on the back fence at The Wheel Store was first designed by Marilou Winkler, age 87, as a quilt to be raffled off at a fundraiser at The Wheel for the National Parkinson's Foundation, to honor Marilou's school principal who was diagnosed with the disease. The Wheel, established in 2011 by Celia Molofsky, is a "Boutique-Gallery-Tavern" whose goal is to support the community through the Arts. Hosting the fundraiser for Parkinson's research is one of the ways she is doing just that.
