    Smile Greetings from Central Connecticut

    I have been making barn quilts since 2009. With not many barns left in Connecticut, I specialize in making 1' x 1' (Door Quilts) that are usually hung on entry doors and 2' x 2' (House Quilts) that are usually hung on houses, garages and sheds. I find it very relaxing plotting out the quilt pattern on a piece of birch plywood and then selecting the colors to create a unique design. Besides Connecticut, I have barn quilts hanging in New Hampshire, West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota and, very soon, in Oregon for a lady who introduced me to this forum.

    Hello Dave, welcome from northern California! Making barn quilts is an interesting approach to quilting and choosing the designs, colors etc. I think it would be very interesting and enjoyable!
