First Barns

There were three new-to-free piecing students in my Folk School class -
Brenda and Sandra and Marlene.

This is the first barn that Brenda built.

She plans to machine appliqué the chickens, trees,
weathervane, and tractor scene.

This is the first barn that Marlene built.

She's planning to hand appliqué the chickens and tractor.

This is the first barn that Sandra built.

When she laid out her ground fabrics 
she kept saying "they're too straight . . . "
so she successfully added some gentle curved piecing. 

The horse and his window are free pieced.

She brought several barn quilt blocks
she had prepared using Printed Treasures -
this one was framed and then machine appliquéd in place.

The sheep will be machine appliquéd.

Over the course of the week
a total of seven barns were created.

I'll share three more in a few days.

The seventh barn is undergoing modifications
so we'll wait to share "before" and "after" photos.
