Blue Skies, Smiling at Me
Dave Whitten and Catherine Huston met in the parking lot of their Virginia Highland condo building in 2017. She was an urban gal at heart, he was a travel-weary engineer, eager to return to his country roots.
When Catherine's boss, a real estate agent, saw a refurbished farmhouse for sale online, he insisted the couple take a look. They drove to Chattahoochee Hills, toured the farmhouse, and knew at once they had found their new home.
The couple selected a barn quilt pattern called "Starburst" but changed its name to "Sunburst" after coloring it with sunshine yellows, cloudy whites, and sky blues to mimic their pretty country view.
