Signature Barn Quilt Pattern

The Sampson County signature barn quilt, designed by Ruth Holland, incorporates a millstone that is inspired by Downtown Clinton’s Public Art Project, called “Milling Around.”  The four barns around the center of the millstone represents our farming heritage, as well as the barns located at the Sampson County History Museum.

The earth tone colors remind us of our agricultural heritage and our dependence on nature and the earth.

The colors and overall design evoke memories of our local Native American culture, and the rich history shared by all of Sampson County’s citizens.
