The story

When I stated to Chris that “we” needed to create a barn quilt, he was actually on board which was very exciting! When we starting to look at different designs we found ones with the maple leaf and the black, white and red colour scheme, which we liked because we knew these colours and symbols, were important to us. Maple Leaf – represents Canada and the 150th celebration. Red, Black and Grey Colours – represents the colours from the Ontario Mine Rescue symbol, which Chris is a part of at Compass Minerals in Goderich. “Ontario Mine Rescue, a part of Workplace Safety North (WSN), has trained and equipped thousands of volunteers who have fought fires, rescued injured personnel, and responded professionally to a wide array of incidents in the province’s mines over the past eight decades.” We began our barn quilt project in our barn when Chris started painting the white background our friendly barn cat Boomer walked right across the fresh paint to greet us. Leaving Boomer with white painted paws and kitty paw prints on the painted surface. Our kids, laughed and laughed, while Chris was not amused. It is a fun memory that we will always remember! The quilt project was then relocated to our shed, where Boomer and the friendly barn swallows could not be pesky visitors. Thank you to the organizers; this has been a fun project and exciting to see them up around the county!
