I'm sorry to say that my barn project is finished! Sorry - not because I don't like it, but sorry because it's done and I can't play with it any more. I had SO much fun creating this and I know I am going to be doing more, once I augment my stash enough to do so.
First of all, here is the original photo I was working from...
You will notice I took a little creative license and left the people out and added a couple of horses to the scene. I'm giving this as a Christmas gift and the people once owned two horses, so I thought it would be nice to include them.
Now, here's the finished piece...
The frame was a perfect thrift store find!
I think you can click to embiggen them
if you so desire!

Earlier in the week DH and I took a little road trip in search of barns that I could create and I think this one will be next 'up' to play with...
These are the types of barns I'm fascinated with.
- If you happen to be a long arm quilter, perhaps you'd like to read about how Vicki uses zippers to attach quilts to her machine at her post HERE.
- There's a tutorial HERE to make a cute little wallet.
- If you happen to like pouches, there's an unusual one HERE.
- Pool noodles. They have great uses in quilting and you can see that HERE.
- How about a tool belt for your sewing machine? I don't know about you, but my tools are constantly rolling/falling off my sewing table and one of these would be so handy!
