    I was inspired and motivated to create a barn quilt this summer when our local county fair advertised they were having an exhibit featuring barn quilts. I love to do fun projects like this around our place. But I did not want to put up a newly painted project on an old barn badly in need of a new paint job! So I told my DH that I was going to paint the barn this summer! With his help, (he doesn't like to paint, so he provided me the loaders and hoisted me up to the high points). I finished everything but the white trim on the garage door. That will soon come, but I was just too excited to get my barn quilt up! I will get it finished soon. (Oh yea, I have two more sides of the barn that still need paint. Anyone want to lend a hand?) :D

    Excellent choice of block and color. I've never been to the US, but I like the idea of barn quilts a lot and would love to travel through an area where you can look at them, one day. Your US barns remind me of Skandinavian buildings, it seems a similar kind of red. We have no buildings like these in Switzerland.

    P.S: Is there a special name for that kind of red? In Sweden it's called "Falun red" and it's a by-product of the copper industry, named after the Falun copper mine.
