The “Twelve Days of Christmas” quilt cards are available for purchase at the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. The theme for the 2014 Christmas Cookie Tour of inns was based on the timeless “Twelve Days of Christmas” song. Chairperson, Loretta Coblentz, designed a quilt of twelve exquisite fabric art blocks, each depicting the celebrated day that each Amish Country participating inn featured.
You may now order these memorable cards. The set of 13 cards includes a detailed image of the entire quilt as well as images of all twelve days of Christmas blocks. Measuring a generous 5” x 7”, and blank inside, the cards are suitable as Christmas greeting cards, notes, and general seasonal greetings. They are also lovely given as Christmas gifts, especially to quilter friends.
Each unique quilt block is creatively appliquéd with wool and cotton; embellished with embroidery, fabric paint, and fabric dye and represents 40-60 hours of labor. Presently the quilt is on display at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, and has been approved to be on exhibit at the 2015 National Quilt Association Show in Arkansas.
The Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns, is an annual inn-to-inn charity event filled with music, Christmas inspirations, and cookies. In the spirit of Christmas giving, 100% of the tour’s net profits are given to local charities. To date, including 2014, accumulative charity donations exceed $100,000. Hospice of Holmes and Wayne County is one of our recipient charities, receiving monies since the inception of the tour.
