Crittenden County's latest quilt block. The Mariner's Compass design.
This colorful painted quilt panel is located on the outbuilding of Virginia McDowell who lives at Mattoon about 5 miles from Marion. Virginia is responsibly for sponsoring this panel.
It is Crittenden's third such painted quilt panel. The panel was placed just this past month. It is very colorful to see as you drive by. It was placed by Neil Decker, a representative of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service. They are the ones that first sponsored the idea of this colorful and historical project throughout Kentucky.
I had the other two on a Blog in March of 2010 under the title "Marion on Quilter's Trail."
