Hands-On Couple - Builds Upon their Heritage
Bill and Wanda Varner come from a long line of countryfolk that seem to know how to do, or fix, anything around their homeplace. When their old family barn was near collapse, they mustered family members to help take it down, clearing space for the next generation of barn.
Years later, after the new barn was built, the couple thought about adding a barn quilt that would somehow honor its heritage. After looking through family heirloom quilts and newer quilt patterns, they selected the "Carpenter's Wheel." This pattern resembles one of their family's quilts, while its name seems a suitable metaphor for this hands-on couple.
