I tried something new with this barn quilt.
I used solids and a minimalist approach.
I rather like it.
Quilted using the elongated zig zag stitch
and walking foot on my Bernina
with a medium gray Aurifil thread.
I took it along during my recent Something Fishy photo shoot.
This is one gorgeous gate
and it makes a spectacular shadow.
The turquoise barn posting on a bike rack
near the Memphis College of Art.
And soaking up some rays.
The back features four fast finish triangles.
18" x 21"
I need to make another barn using solids . . .

It may be hard to believe,
since we first shared the existence of
The Secret Society of Barn Builders -
the gallery quilt makers for what was then
"a book" about to be published.
SO much has happened since then!
|Version one of The Yellow Barn|
BUILD A BARN was indeed published
by the American Quilters' Society
in April, 2016.
|Version two of The Yellow Barn|
As part of the book's release,
the SSOBB gallery quilts were displayed three times
as a curated grouping before being returned to their makers.
|Version three of The Yellow Barn|
And this barn, The Yellow Barn,
is the first one that Max and I have quilted.
As usual, the first one is the most nerve wracking . . .
especially since it will be used as a Teacher's Sample.
(I also have another brand new barn to share -
that one will be walking-foot-quilted)
|The Yellow Barn - 17" x 21"|
There are still a few spaces available
for my BUILD A BARN class April 2-7
at the John C. Campbell Folk School
in Brasstown, NC . . .
The Yellow Barn mini quilt will be there.
Wouldn't it be fun if you were, too?
