It’s Cindy reporting in from Ohio. The barn quilt/barn raising is complete….yippee!! Sandy and I are very happy with the results. Here’s the final view:
My quilter, Ms. SJ, used a barbed wire quilt pattern to complement the barn theme. Here’s a close up.
We found this very cute 108″ wide fabric for the backing. These kitty cats can make anyone smile.
We were thinking about a red bandana print for the binding but decided on something more geometric. Because the quilt measures 85 x 96 inches, we needed 10 strips of binding! Yikes! Lots of ironing required.
Now that our barn raising is complete, the masterpiece has been shipped to our sister in the sunny south. Another Christmas gift checked off our list!
