    This is my barn quilt...I live in town..I don't actually have a barn..but I do have SIX children...so it may be considered a barn anyhow?

    I always ask them if they were born in a barn because they don't close doors ( quite frequently)...to which they reply.."Maybe?? Weren't you there?">
    :?

    I think I have even gotten "Well Jesus was born in a barn...So it can't be that bad?"
    :hunf:

    So anyway...I see the pictures on here quite often....and at a quilt show yesterday someone was selling them...so I bought one! YAY!

    Now everyone in town will know a quilters lives in my barn...er I mean house.

    Thanks!

    I'm going to add one in the Spring. It's a good thing my son is willing to put up such things because I don't do high ladders.

    Yours is a very pretty one. Like the colors, love the pattern.

    That is beautiful! I've often thought of painting some to sell at the farmers market. If you feel comfortable saying how much you paid, I'd appreciate it. If not, I understand.
    It's gorgeous!

    Sure!

    They had small I think maybe 14 inch ones for 25$ and this one which is about 26 inches was 40$

    I hope that helps.

    Very pretty! And so refreshing to hear that your kids know that Jesus is the ideal role model.

    How are they made? Just painting on a board or what? If it is just painting then I could do one for myself.
    Thanks for any answers.
