    Does anyone know of a farm house pattern that is not as difficult as the one featured on Quilter's Cache? I am willing to paper-piece, applique, anything - just need something simple.

    Thanks! :-)

    Find a color book and create the pattern that works for you (smile). I use color book pics a lot.

    I looked up the pattern you mentioned ... I'm pretty sure there's a basic house pattern, also on QC. Not sure what it's listed as.

    Did you try Google?

    Thanks. Yes I have tried google, I've googled til I'm googled-out! You wouldn't think a simple farm house would so difficult to find.

    Thank you Karen! This looks more like a barn to me, but I am also looking for a barn - so thanks.

    Try Google Images . On the left side you can refine selections for line drawings and clip art. If you find something you like your printer can be your enlarger. Eliminate details.

    Expand your search with "Ranch house" or "cottage" or "rural housing"

    Hello, just like others have said I too find a coloring book helpful. They are very inexpensive and you can find them any where. Also look on the site..I think it is free quilt patterns. Good luck. When you are finished send us a picture of your farm quilt. I know I would love to see it and I am sure others would also.

    Try one of the Thimbleberries books - there are a few house patterns in them.

    It really isn't that hard...Give it a try...Just make sure all the pieces measure to that 1 inch block...If you have any problems I'd be happy to help out...I know allot of the ladies couldn't get their printers to print to the inch...I'll be able to aid you on that if you have the same problems...just PM me.

    if you are interested in something like that, you could use them as patterns with your own twist...[they're OLD]

    Thank you! No, I was surprised at how it went together so easily.
