The clients “loved it and asked if they could do one,” Layman said, adding that Lauren Byron, an artist that teaches the class at Spencer Penn, was asked if she could put the design on a board. “We searched online for designs and found one that means ‘friendship.’ We thought that was a very appropriate design since everyone here is family and friends,” Layman said. Board member Lisa Martin, also of the Reynolds Homestead, provided the necessary information for PARC to be included on the Barn Quilt Trail.
