    Very nice. I grew up in western Kansas, & don't remember seeing anything like that on any building. Want to make a much smaller one for my deck. Thank you for sharing your photo.

    What a great gift for your dad! I want to make a small one to hang on my garage. Thanks for telling how you made it. The 2 x 4s are a really great idea!

    Thanks for sharing the photo, also how you made it and why you chose the colors and design. It makes it more meaningful when we get the full story!

    Thank you so much for sharing your techniques. That treated ply- and wood are devilishly heavy!

    We have some barn quilts in the Tillamook area on the Oregon coast. Love finding them when we are passing through. Great job on yours! I am sure your dad loves it!

    It's like a cheerful greeting evertime he enters. Really nicely done.
