    I love it, and I'm sure your dad will. It's awesome!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That is tremendous. Wow, I am looking at the barn boards and the boards in the doors. Oh my gosh, I just noticed the foliage and the flowers. So many details to find and enjoy, wow.

    It is a beautiful quilt block and I know your Dad will be proud to have it! Too bad you cannot incorporate a barn quilt on that barn! It would be your signature for the quilt.....he a farmer...you a quilter.

    I can't take credit for the detail and realistic look. That was the fabric designers. i just cut the fabric and put it together. I did think about addin a quilt block to the barn but decided against it. One of the blocks on the quilt will be the farmer's daughter block. Thanks everyone for all the comments and compliments.
