    I don't have a barn, but

    I do have a backyard fence. I plan on painting at least one more.

    We live in an area with the barn quilt tours. I don't have a barn, or a fence. But I have thought of painting a sampler quilt on the panels of my garage door. So far, I haven't convinced my hubby that this is a great idea.

    Tell him he needs to keep up with the neighbors, wouldn't they get a hoot to drive through your neighborhood and see that

    I also do not have a barn and had not thought of painting my fence. Looking forward now to a new project for this summer

    You might not have a barn, but I think your fence would look terrific if you had a whole row of these lovely quilt blocks painted on them. You can start a new thing here with you great idea.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Love your fence! We are planning a quilt square probably on plywood to hang on the fence behind our RV site. I don't think owners would appreciate me painting one on their fence.
