    Farm Quilt for my Dad

    This is a block I making for a quilt that I'm making for my Dad. The barn is the only thing stitched now right now. All the other small pieces are just fused. Hope to get this block completed over the weekend. He was a farmer and raised tobacco until he was 75 or 76. I'm planning to surprise him with it.

    Ditto.

    Great attention to detail - looks like the barn siding was nailed on one level at a time -

    Oh how nice ... does this replicate your barn and the tractor, cattle, etc. in the pic?

    We had Farmalls at home, and then my husband and I bought one for an extra tractor on our farm ... so this pulls at my heart strings a tad.

    I'm sure your Dad will be thrilled. I'll look forward to seeing your continual progress.

    Thank you, everyone. The barn is a replica of the barn on the farm where we lived when I was born and lived until I was 11. Well, as best as I can remember it, with the exception of the color of the doors. They were the same as the barn but thought they may get lost if done in the same fabric. We had the holstein cows and the Farmall Tractor. The kitties, though, represent the ones I have now. We always had cats and dogs. My dad retired when he was 76, he's now 87 and well deserves a tribute to him.
