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!
