the Round Robin 30 – make your own barn quilt

happy monday….

in the sewing room…

While traveling you see the darndest things— the above picture is one from a shop that was selling some linens and other fun kitchen things.

Did you spot the chicken in there?! I have one of these…and apparently they aren’t only found in the US.

Thought it might bring you a smile today— do you have a chicken for your kitchen?


today’s topic…  making your own barn quilt

During last summer a friend and I had volunteered to be in charge of our quilt group meeting.

We decided to do— quilt block painting.

During the spring we had gotten together and painted large quilt blocks on 3 X 3 squares.  They are big and wonderful, but knew that they were too large for the group to make.

After looking around for a bit we decided to go with a chunky piece of wood.  2″ chunky.  That would keep the wood from warping for the most part and if they wanted to stand it up they could- on a shelf or table.  Or if they wanted, they could use it laying down like a hot plate.

sew it…

Materials needed:

1 block of wood. We went with a 2 x 8



acrylic paint in your choice of colors



painters tape

Quilt block designs
