    My Christmas gift finally has a home

    My dear children gave me a barn quilt for Christmas... they made it themselves. I have wanted one for ever. They are very popular in rural Iowa. It is finally nice enough here in Iowa that my hubby put it up yesterday.

    Looks so pretty.

    Here in Nebraska they haven't caught on yet. I have the wood cut for mine and am waiting for nicer weather to paint outside. I think mine will be a star of some sort.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Very nice and you picked a great spot to put it on. Every time you look at the bird feeder, you can see your quilt block design.

    That is very pretty! My friend has a barn and she quilts. However, she has no desire at this point in time to put one up. I want one for her. I know though that it's not my barn.
    Go forth and sew!

    OMG! What a picture!!! I love the barn quilt, I'm sure you are thrilled. I love the photo - it is so beautiful, inspiring and calm. Perhaps its time for me to return to Iowa for a visit

    Sew put it on the side of your house if you have a place for one. If my room ever gets done there will be one on the side of my house.

    What a wonderful present for you. That will have to put a smile on your face every time you see it.

    To luvsto quilt - I'm with you wishing I had a barn to put one on. Also live about 15 minutes from you in IL.

    Very pretty barn block! I have seen lots of barn quilts around Iowa. They add a pop of color to the country side.

    I love your barn quilt. My barn quilt will about that same size. I have a 24" square piece of wood I purchased from Lowes. I still have to prime and get my screws. Mine is going up on my wooden fence in my backyard so I can see it all the time.

    I am extremely jealous, haven't got DH convinced that I NEED one yet, maybe someday. What considerate kids you have, they did a great job. (I know, I'll get my kids to make me one then he will feel it has to be hung up.) Hmmm now there's a thought. LOL
