    Barn Quilt

    My husband and I painted this barn quilt for my Mother's barn here in Wisconsin. We also painted another one exactly the same for my garage. I now have 3 barn quilts and I change them occasionally.

    Fantastic! I don't have a barn but I do have big garage out back, maybe I should put a barn quilt on it. That sounds really fun. How big did you make them? Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    Great barn quilt! I love them but thought I don't have a place to put one. But.... I just put a small shed on my deck. I could do a 1.5x1.5 ft one... hmmmmm, wheels turning

    Beautiful, did you have a pattern or did you make you own?

    What a great barn quilt. That would be perfect for memorial day. Fourth of July and labor day.

    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!!!
