The following is a description that's written on my Pinterest page, and it pretty much describes me to a T:
I love fabric and old quilts...and barn quilts, too, and old barns...bird houses, watering cans, gardens, and white picket fences...and all things country.
I promised to post about the new barn quilt I received in my stocking this past Christmas. Well...really...there was a piece of paper saying that Tom had gifted me a barn quilt and would install it wherever I wanted.This particular barn quilt is extra special to me because my quilting teacher, Barbara, over at Quilting Gal, painted it!
Here's a photo below that I took from Barbara's blog that shows some of her barn quilts. They are all beautiful. You can see more of her barn quilts on her Pinterest Barn Quilt Board.Tom secured the new barn quilt on the side of his tool shed, and it can easily be seen when we're sitting on the deck (in warmer weather!):Here's the picture of the same quilt in the snow that I posted just recently: Here's my other barn quilt below which I've had for a few years. It's installed on my garden shed....yes, his and hers sheds, and they each have their own barn quilt! I can't wait until there are beautiful flowers growing again around each of these sheds!
Both of these barn quilts are the 4x4 size. But...Tom also complimented the larger barn quilt with a smaller 2x2 size that is just perfect to greet visitors at our front door. Barbara painted this one, too. I love them both!:And for a final photo...here's Barbara, yours truly, and Barbara's mother when we met up at a local restaurant last spring. Looks like none of us have a clue where the camera is on her cell phone! Ha! But I treasure this photo because of the special time we enjoyed together: Hope you enjoyed seeing my new barn quilts! You'll have to come see them in person!
