    My barn is falling down so I painted this one. My DH put a frame on it and graciously allowed me to hang it on the garage wall. The name of the block is "Directors Dream". Hope you like it as much as I do!

    Cool! I may have to do one for my backyard. Meditteranian style house just doesn't seem the right "fit" for a barn quilt. But I'm sure I can find a place in my backyard on the fence or something.

    You did a wonderful job on painting the block and framing it. I am working on a crazy quilt for the front of my house.Moosegirl

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words. It took several weeks but was well worth it. When I drive into the driveway it presents a WOW factor! Sorry, had to brag a little!

    Great job. I want to hang one of these on my garage as well. This is inspiration to get started. Thank you for sharing.

    I've been thinking of doing this on the side of my shed, but I was going to paint it on the shed itself. Do people normally paint it on the shed/barn itself or on another piece of wood and hang it on the barn?
    When I was a kid, the people down the street had a whole Amish scene painted on their garage door. Went by the other day,35 yrs later it's still there.
