Some people have told me that they can't have a "barn quilt" because they don't have a barn. This is what we did over the weekend to show what can be done with a "barn quilt". A barn quilt doesn't have to be on a barn, it can be put on a post anywhere outdoors or on the side of any outdoor structure. I think of it as bringing the beauty of quilts to the great outdoors.

A lot of people ask me how I come up the quilt blocks. I have been quilting for almost 3o years, so I have made a lot of quilts and wallhangings. I have also collected a lot of books and magazines about quilting. So, the quilt blocks are all around me! Of course, some work better as barn quilts than other, so I have revisited those books and magazines, looking for quilts blocks that would work best for a barn quilt.
