Work in Progress

Look at the way this student used her fabrics
to add detail to her free pieced barn -
flowers along the stone wall, 
a rock foundation for the barn itself, 
a stone path leading in and out of the barn,
and even a barn quilt on the barn.

Another example of using a photograph
for inspiration while building.

(I love that sky fabric)

This student included some wonderful details 
like the transom above the barn door
and the area to the right of the barn.

Free piecing gives you so many ways 
to personalize your work.

And at the end of the day,
THIS can be the result!

by Lynne Tyler at Quilted Threads in Henniker NH)

  1. I love all the old barns, in my travels. I have also enjoyed your site for all of your quilts that you do. I spend a lot of time on your site exploring. I would like to purchase two (2) of your Barn Books, if possible. One to keep and one to give to a friend new to quilting. Thank you, Denise.


Thank you so much for taking time to share your thoughts!
