(ignore the colors, they mean NOTHING!)
But the end product is big!
I’m going to make a barn quilt, 4×4 feet. So each block above will be 2ft x 2ft.
I’m not sure on colors yet, I want to keep it simple, probably 5 colors. This side of the barn faces the road so I’d like it to not look awful.
As you may have realized, I suck at quilting. Not the actual craft, just the whole getting started thing.
But I’ve had The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book for a while and I like to look at it all the time AND I’ve been saying I’ll make a barn quilt since before I even had a barn.
Combine the two and hopefully I’ll get a nice decoration for right here between the windows:
Like how the barn is two colors? When we move in it was a 3 sided shed. Lots of money later we had a second half, two doors and three windows. Sophia, the cow, learned how to open the windows (theirs in the one one the left) and had since removed 2 screens.
Someday the whole thing will all be blue metal, we’ll likely get it done just after the blue fades enough that they never match.
But that’s gotta wait, at least until the wood is no longer useable, or we win the lottery.
What do you thing? Color wise or pattern wise
Do you like the block I chose?
Should I include ‘sashing’? (I’m leaning to yes)
