Barn Quilt Painting

A bunch of us got together to paint some barn quilts. Our host’s husband (George) very kindly prepped all of the 2′ x 2′ squares for us. He even primed them and sanded them!!

Each of us picked a different pattern! It was fun to see the variety! We started out, using a pencil and marking our boards in grids. Then the painter’s tape was applied and the painting began!

Robin had taken a class, but the rest of us relied on Youtube! (grin!)

I forgot to take my phone, so the credit for these pictures goes to Robin, Judy and Linda!

Most of us used acrylic paints. I bought mine at Michaels. My husband coated it with a varathane.

Here it is outside, waiting to be hung up …

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  2. What a fun day! That was awfully nice of Linda’s hubby to get things ready for you all. One of my friends told me to keep barn quilts nice if hung outside that one should use marine lacquer (?) to seal it. I don’t know for sure, just passing on this info. Your block is gorgeous!
