Barn Quilt Sew Along

Have you heard?! Paulette of Sweet P Quilting and Creations is doing a “Where the Cows Come Home” sew along!  We are so excited to see everyone’s blocks as they go along, oops, I mean “sew along!”

Well, we have been dreaming of an all cotton version of this quilt since we wrote the book and we thought this was the perfect excuse and opportunity to make it happen.  If you aren’t familiar with the quilt, the original is wool applique on pieced cotton backgrounds.  We have wanted to show that no matter what you love to work with you can make this quilt!  If you have experience with applique, the pattern can easily be adapted to your favorite method.

Kathy had a fun time auditioning some of her favorite fabrics for Block One, “The Milking Parlor.”

She mixed some new gorgeous yarn dyed Diamond Textiles with some sweet little prints from her stash.  Here is the finished background with her pull for the barn…

And the big reveal!

Didn’t it turn out great?!  Now, it’s your turn!  If you’d like to share your blocks, we’d love to see them!  And make sure you stop by Paulette’s blog for all the details on the stitch along.

New Barn Quilt – Block 2

Hi Everyone!  We hope you are having a great week!  Here is block #2 of Kathy’s new barn block-of-the-month.  We will be posting a new block each week, so check back often.  You can see little glimpses of the other ones on the sides for now.  We really hope you will love this quilt as much as we do!  The colors and textures are amazing, it reminds me of a beautiful folk art painting.

Barn BOM Block 2

It is still waiting to be quilted…

I recently started longarm quilting and love it!  I think it is so much fun!  Kathy is trusting me with quilting this new BOM even though I have only been quilting for a few months.  I still can’t believe it, I feel a bit nervous but I will be starting on it sometime next week.  I will be sure to post progress pics as I go along.

Make sure to catch up with us on Facebook too.  We are definitely social media novices but we are learning!
