    What a fun project! I painted a barn quilt for my dad's barn.. it was an 8' x 8' beast to hang!

    My biggest tip is to sketch your design out on graph paper, then take a pencil and make a little dot on your shed that lines up with each intersection. That way, you can always quickly refer to the graph paper when painting. If you're working in Row 3, Column 2, for example, it's just a quick glance to make sure you're painting correctly.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

    A small town where I raised my kids Grahamsville NY had so many barns and sheds with quilt blocks, it looked so so cool. I am talking one out of three people did this. They all did do this on a board and then hung the board.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
