The wife and I got our first barn quilt completed in December and hung about New Year time. It looks very nice on our barn/garage. It is 4’ x 4’ and has 2×2s around the edge on the back for stiffness. My wife has become unemployed recently and wants to start making these as a little business.

For those that don’t know, barn quilts have been popping up on rural barns for the last several years around the country. Most are painted examples of traditional quilt block patterns, some are very non-traditional. I like them all.

Not a lot of woodworking in it but I did use a saw and sander so it counts.

This came up under the ‘roll the dice’ feature on the home screen. A very interesting pattern and inspiring.
