    I'm getting a barn quilt! I'm getting a barn quilt!

    Can you tell I'm excited?
    My curmudgeon of a DH said he wanted to surprise me, but couldn't, because he wouldn't know what block to use. I was totally shocked!
    We have a friend who offered to do the work for us for free! Of course we'll give him something, but it won't break the bank. We're providing the materials. If I'm lucky, I'll have it before the local quilt show, but I'm not counting my chickens. I'm just ecstatic that I'm finally going to have one!!!!

    I'm so happy for you. I think I would love to have one too. I love the idea of them putting a bright spot on a hum drum barn..

    What a nice "surprise" from your DH!
    Have you decided on your block yet? ..... and do you have a barn? or will it be on a garage?

    Perfect timing, if you could have it done for your quilt show. Good Luck!!

    We have no barn....but there's a big blank wall of our house that could fit about 4. I am not holding my breath....we have been here for about 14 years and still haven't finished renovating.

    The only barn quilts I have seen are painted on the side of barns. Is this the same thing as you are getting? Sorry to sound so ignorant. I am a country girl now, but was raised in Brooklyn, NY so I guess you can't always take the city out of the girl! Love the way barns look with their painted quilts. Congrats on yours. Please post pix.
