Quilt Square

 

Randi Gish Smith was commissioned to design the colorful square, which is a traditional pineapple quilt square with a stenciled pineapple in the center.  We selected this design because the pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of early American colonies.  The colors of autumn leaves were chosen to complement the buff colored rock.  

The quilt square hangs from a red cedar log that is mounted atop several layers of limestone rock that were quarried from our property and hauled to this location.  The stone wall is 12’ tall at its highest point and stretches 120’ in length.  There are approximately 100 rocks totaling 350 tons.

From Concept to Completion

 

“MONROE TOWNSHIP – A new quilt square on the Adams County Quilt Trail was dedicated Thursday afternoon by the Adams County Chamber of Commerce.  The pineapple square is located at The Rock Vacation Rental, 1069 State Route 247 South.”
