|The Steward's Square
Nancy Thompson, of Little Cove Farm in Port Republic, chose a maple leaf
design for her barn quilt square as a tribute to her late husband
Richard "Rick" Thompson, an ardent environmentalist who planted the
maple trees that surround the jousting field at their local Christ
Church. Nancy was an educator for 29 years teaching Horticulture and
Biology at various schools in Prince George's County, and now she says
she is "the steward of the gardens" that surround her home. Little Cove
Farm, purchased 39 years ago and lovingly restored by Rick and Nancy,
dates back to the 1820's and is CT 44 on the Maryland Inventory of
Historic Properties. In their honor, this square will be known as "The
Steward's Square" on the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail.
The square is
located at 3980 Hance Road, Port Republic, MD. Please view the square
from the side of the road and be aware of two way traffic.
thanks to Phil Pfanschmidt for his help building the square and to Bill
Sells and Joe Trevisan and Nancy Thompson's son, Mike Metz, for their
help installing the 19th square on the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail.
