Barn Raising

Sandy and I have several group projects in process and one of them is a barn quilt for our brother in law. He grew up on a farm “down the road” a few miles from us. He and our sister live in Florida now so we thought we’d take him on a trip down memory lane with a quilt.

I started looking through my stash and found some fabrics that just might work for a barn or two! How about this Gray Barn siding fabric? A dear friend gave it to me and it’s perfect! It’s also very Buckeye-ish with red fabrics. You know the drill…every true Buckeye loves scarlet and gray…but I digress!

We’re going to make it a very scrappy quilt and add some fun fabrics.

I have a flamingo print and because they live in Florida, we really have no choice but to work it into the barn quilt somehow. Got any ideas? Let us know!

One of the barn block patterns we’re using in our quilt is from Eleanor Burns. You can download it by clicking on the link below. It’s FREE!
