Sequence of Barn Quilt Painting

So many of you have asked how the Barn Quilt Classes are set up!  Like any other quilting class, there is some prep-work, before you can get to the actual painting.  After that there are some techniques to learn for taping, painting and removing the tape. Eventually all the spaces are filled, the magic happens, and the Barn Quilt is finished!

My friend Ada, who took the class from me in Eugene a couple days ago was sweet enough to send this sequence of pictures, showing some of the steps.  The finish is PRICELESS! It will hand near her beautiful English garden near the McKenzie River, and forever maker her guests smile.  I love the colors she chose, especially the salmon-pink which is for her granddaughter.  The next Eugene class will be September 8th for the MQG! After that I’ll be teaching at the West Side Quilters Guild in Portland, OR and at the NW Quilting EXPO also in Portland!

Barn Quilt Take Over!!

So, can I just tell you how much fun these Barn Quilt Classes are?  I’ve been teaching both BIG and small classes.  It is a very manageable project, where everyone goes home with a finished  Barn Quilt.   The process is pretty low-stress, and there’s lots of time for conversation.  Most will finish in about 5 hours, so when the class is scheduled for 6 hours, even the more complicated designs can be finished.  The next classes are scheduled at the Stitchin’ Post on August 17 and 18.  Check out their workshop and class page  to reserve your seat!  After that, there will be more classes in Eugene on August 23rd and 25th, send me a message to register, I’ll also advertise those on Facebook and Instagram. I teach at quilt guilds as well, so if your guild is interested, I do travel throughout the Pacific Northwest.  I’m always adding new patterns, I’m sure you will find your favorite!
