    So, they are like "hex signs" that people put on barns? Very stunning!

    I am making the "Barn Quilts on American Barns" quilt. I have all the blocks done and assembled. I am now in the process of putting all the borders on. I am going to add borders until it is a queen size quilt. The barn quilt I painted, is 4 feet X 4 feet the design is taken from Eleanors barn quilts book. It was tricky to get the proper angles and to tape it all of to paint it, but I love it and it was worth the work!!! Thanks everyone for your nice comments.

    We just bought a 4 ft X 4 ft piece of plywood. A better grade of plywood is helpful. I just divided up the board as though I was drawing a 9 patch. Then just worked each section out, drawing lines . We then taped off all the parts we wanted White. Painted them, a couple of times. Then proceeded to tape off and paint the next color. As you can tell this is a little tedious but also a lot of fun. You just paint a little each day. We used exterior paint from Menards. I hope you all will try it. Lots of fun!!!

    We got a 4 ft by 4 ft good quality piece of plywood from Menards. We did not screw it directly to the wall, we used metal hangers and have large screws to slip the hangers onto. Since I have painted 2 other designs (3 altogether) then I can change out my design occasionally. Keeps my neighbors guessing!!!
