    barn block

    I have seen a few quilts that are made from blocks that are barns that have a quilt block on the side. I hope that even makes sense.
    Every search I do for a pattern always takes me to barn quilts. The wooden ones that are placed on barns, which I do love BTW.
    Anyone have an idea what to search for, or know where I might find that pattern?
    Thanks

    I don't know but I have the same problem trying to figure out what words to use in searches to come out with what I want, I guess I think differently than the search engines!

    Look around the Quilt in a day site. She did blocks with barns and put little quilts on the barns.
    Can't remember much more than that.

    Years ago the Golden Thimble had a 9 month barn BOM that was really cute. It was as you say, barns with quilt blocks on them. Sadly, the site is gone. The patterns were free and I have most of them along with the finishing instructions.

    What a cute tutorial. I love the quilt with the barn pictures with the blocks on them.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Quilt Blocks on American Barns is EB book. She did a series on her TV show on PBS.

    I did the barn blocks from Bee in My Bonnet website a couple of years ago. It is so cute. I don't think the tutorial is posted any longer. Some of the barns have silos and some don't.

    Lori Holt beom bee in my bonnet posted a number of quilt patterns on barns a year or so ago. Hopefully, this link will take you to some of those patterns.

    I have done several barn quilts on a 12x12 board. I like doing Bear Claw or the star patterns. Everything is square or triangle and looks so good on a 12x12 board. I have mine above the garage door (single car garage) and it is always so good to see it when I am coming down the alley toward home. Edie

    Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet has quite a few different barn blocks in it. It is an awesome book.

    "Log cabin schoolhouse". I just tried is on yahoo images and one came up in the first row of pictures. You do want the school house shape with the side as a log cabin quilt right?
