The Barns Come Home


Almost two years ago, Julie asked me to build a barn. I built two. This is the second barn I made, and the one that inspired it is less than a quarter mile away from my house and I drive by it every day.

I sent Julie a pieced block, and she had it quilted, so I've only seen the finished barn in pictures. Now it's home and I get to enjoy all the details.

I'll be teaching a barn class some time next year at Quilted Threads. Speaking of which, here's my first barn, which is located right across the street from QT.

Oh my!! That barn quilted is amazing, the stitching sets it off perfectly.And your other one, cannot let it stand there without a very honourable mention too.

I wish I had a studio in either of those barns. It has been my dream since I was little to have a studio in a barn. Since I am now 62, doesn't seem like that is going to happen. Love your barn blocks!

I know those barns! Great images. How are the little black dots in the white barn formed?
