You Could Make a Barn Quilt!!

This is my last post of Ohio! Promise!!

Here are more great barn quilts! This is the carpenter block on a Nazarene church property. 
A few of them opted to put theirs on a sign post. I think it looks great!





The gallery of Ashtabula County barn quilts is HERE. You can get ideas of colors or blocks that you'd like.If you wanted to make one for your property. 

Directions for what kind of paint and how to do it can be found HERE.  Click on standards. It is 4 pages long, don't let that scare you- it is a lot of details, but not as hard as you would think.


My sister made this for her house in Idaho after seeing the barn quilts and using the directions I listed the link for! It looks really cute!

Have a fantastic week!

  3. I's a fun way to get sightseers! I think I ve seen the quilt blocks in PA, maybe. I thought from your header you were saying to make a real quilt with blocks you visited, which would be fun.

  4. Thanks for the Barn Quilt Tour. I checked for Barn Quilt trails in Texas, and only three counties were shown on the map, and two of those links say they cannot be reached. Rats! The link that works is quite a distance from me, but I just may have to check it out some day. ---"Love"

  5. I enjoyed the tour. I doubt I would ever get a barn quilt made, but I enjoy seeing what others are able to create.

  6. Still loving the pictures!
    Where's YOUR barn quilt?? VBG
    I bought one at the Sunriver Quilt show a couple of years ago, although I don't have it hung yet--of course, I don't have a barn but would love to hang it on my garage. Don't think I am likely to make one myself, though!! They are great to look at!

  7. I love barn quilts. Those are beautiful, and are on beautiful buildings. Northwest Alabama joined the Barn Quilts Trail last year. I posted about it, but somehow received no comments. It's great to know that people are interested in barn quilts after all :)

  9. Or a person could make a sampler quilt using their choice of the blocks represented on the buildings.

  15. I never get tired of seeing barn quilt pictures! I was so surprised when you mentioned a Nazarene church since I attend a Nazarene church in Idaho! What is a carpenter block? And why does a church have one?
