Barn Quilts going to Indiana and Missouri

We have had computer and internet problems, so my post did not get on line. I am combining all the post into one. Here are the pictures of the two wooden barn quilt blocks that I have almost ready to mail.



Playing Catch Up On Barn Quilt Photos

I have some new photos of finished barn quilt blocks. These have all been delivered or picked up. I love getting photos of the finished quilt blocks to see where they are hanging. Keep the stories and photos coming. 

This is a really cute cabin. The barn quilt looks fantastic on it.
You did a good job picking out the design.
Thanks for the photo.


Barn Quilt Progress

Yes I am busy painting four more barn quilts.

This is the start of a Chinese Coin. It also looks great hung as a diamond.

I have 2 Patriotic blocks started a 2 foot and a 4 foot. I also have an order for an 8 foot but it will have to be done later as it will not fit in my studio with any other projects.

This is the start of a nine patch. It can also be hung as a diamond or a square.



New Barn Quilt photo

It's almost like Christmas to get an email with a barn quilt photo, after it has arrived at it's new home. I love seeing where the finished barn quilts are hung.

This Shooting Star is overlooking a golf course in Okoboji, IA. It was a surprise birthday gift for Rebekah's husband.

Thanks Rebekah for sending the photo!

Barn Quilts for WI and MN

I am working on two wooden quilt blocks that are the same. One is going to WI and the other one is going to MN.

This quilt block is called Summer Wreath. It was a very hard one to calculate all the angles but it is coming along really good now. It will be beautiful when it is done. I have three more coats of white before I start the next color.
