Since buying a cabin in Laurel Bloomery, I have been seeing a lot of barn quilts in this area. They looked like so much fun ~I had to make one for our shed. Then one led to another which led to another. The shed is smaller compared to the barns around here so I painted mine on a 2 x 2 inch board. I drew the pattern and gave each color block 3 coats of exterior paint before giving 3 coats of polyurethane in satin. I made my neighbor a 3 x 3 foot quilt for her barn. The pattern I chose for hers is called Janet’s Star. Who knew there was a quilt pattern with my name. These are so much fun to do. I love trying different color combinations.
State Line Baptist Church planned a Fall festival and had food and crafts for donation- only fund drive. I decided to make one for the festival. My d.h. said it was too bright and people wouldn’t want it except for kindling. My sweet d.h., Always the encourager! I was relieved they actually got a donation for it.
