I am wanting to paint a small block for our storage building. I wanted a daylily pattern of some type. I did a large Star block for our barn. Not sure which I like the best.

Good morning Teresa,

I think this is an awesome idea. I am a huge quilter. I really like the Carolina Lily quilt block. Lovey dubby

Thanks for sharing your project with us!
I made a civil war quilt. Each block was different, and had an historical event attached to it.

I believe the block next to the star block was a daylily block.:-)
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Hello, Angela, it has been years since I quilted but now I am a quilt collector. I love the art on old barns and buildings. I like the last one a lot too!

Your quilt is so nice, thanks for posting it Hurray!

Teresa,

I really like the one featured on the red barn. However, the purple color is a neat idea, as it is not as common of a color choice for the barn quilts I've seen. I'd love to do a barn quilt, but my old barn is about to fall down. It's been through a flood and it was hit by the front end loader of a tractor by my Papa who said that d*** barn shouldn't have been there anyway. ;) When you come visit, you will see for yourself first hand.

If my photo files were better organized I would show you. I think I have one on my FB page last year when we got it put up.

What a super idea! Gail Korn in NE posted a picture of a quilt block she'd done on her barn some years ago. It was a simple green and white pattern but she'd planted hostas in front of that barn and it made a totally wow look. You have many beautiful patterns to choose from, but my thoughts would be to pick something that would be recognizable and easy to see from a distance, something your visitors would immediately recognize as a quilt pattern. Thus, I like the traditional quilt patterns - the red and green on the white background was my absolute favorite! Good luck with this project.

Angie, there is one. Here is the link. It would be more difficult to paint. It is beautiful.

Here is one that I had also thought about if I strayed from the lily theme. Farmer's daughter (which I am one )
