    My little "barn quilt"...

    I have always loved barn quilts. This will have to do for now! Its an Ohio star (cuz we live in OH) and the flowers that we see looking out to the "barn" are the same colors that I used to paint the block. A little painters tape and a ruler-easy peasy! I want it to "weather" a bit, and then I will add some polyurethane to seal it.

    Love the quilt. Its placement is just perfect.
    I just read on another thread that polyurethane yellows--the thread about DH making a barn quilt for a board member. Sorry I can't post a link.

    That is so cute! We have a huge semi dreadful airplane hanger and hubby agreed to let me make it a "quilt". I don't even know where to start. What size is yours and what kind of paint did you use?

    Kudos!

    sheriR....mine is only 24" x 24"....just bought a piece of particle(?) board that was pre-cut at HD, put several coats of white primer on. I sketched out the block on graph paper, then measured and drew the design on the board with a pencil. Used painter's tape to block off one section at a time, and tried to be very patient to let each coat of paint dry before ripping off the tape to do the next section! I just used acrylic craft paint. Will seal it in the fall after it has weathered and toned down a bit. If you google "barn quilts", there are tons of tutorials on making full-sized quilts. Most, I believe, are done in 4 sections. Have fun!

    I think I can do that. Thanks so much for the info. I just painted the egg box lids for the coop hubby made for his new babies, maybe I can use some of that paint. (red, white & blue)
