The barn wall hanging with pix of my family is in the works....

I am finding it challenging as I describe myself as a quilter w/ ADHD.....

Here is what we have so far



I know the silo is a bit crooked but am telling myself that's what makes it mine! :shock:
I have learned that I should use pins if I want things to line up....and it hurts to stab yourself with the seam ripper... :roll:

Thanks for peeking....

Lookin' good! I see you're a lot more adventerous than I - my skies are 'one color'.

What size is the picture in the barn door?

That's what I said! :wink: Angie mentioned to me--in our many emails--that she was
winging
it--and I told her, ever so gently, (right drivin'?) that many patterns--this one in particular--needs a bit of presicion. :lol:

I think she should try crumb squares next--Ang--you will love those. :D Except she doesn't have enough fabric yet.... well--for a few squares....

But--on with the barn quilt! Are you planning on making wall hangings, or a quilt?
