3 x 3 quilt block
Cardinal Heritage is an original block designed by Dianne Barnhill, a member of the Landrum Quilters.
The design incorporates the colors and mascot of Landrum Middle School with quilt blocks, symbolizing the long-standing relationship between the school and the Landrum Quilters. With the exception of the first one, all Landrum quilt shows since the early Nineties have taken place in this facility which served as the high school until recent years. The club traditionally provides gifts to the school in appreciation.
Crystal McSwain,principal at the time, explained the quilt block project to art students, showed them the scale drawing of the block and passed around the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail brochure to encourage them to name the quilt panel. Cardinal Heritage was selected from the name submitted by Lucas Champion, an eighth grade art student.
The block hangs above the entrance to the gymnasium, site for the Landrum quilt shows.
