Quilty Barn Along

Posted Tuesday, March 19th, 2013 in My Projects, QAL, Quilting | Tags: , ,

My friend Kris told me about another QAL (quilt- along) that I could not resist. Lori Holt at Bee In My Bonnet is hosting the QAL with tutorials.

This is the first barn with a Weathervane block made from 1930s fabrics.

The block in this barn is “Farm Fresh Flower“.

I made the first block twice. I had used fabrics from my scrap basket the first time. When I made the second block, I decided to use 1930 reproduction fabrics for the inserted blocks. I took the first block apart and inserted a new “Weathervane” block made from the ’30s fabrics.

Thank you Glenda. The finished size of the block is 14 inches. The smaller block inside the barn is a six inch block.
