Another Barn Has Risen

I’m excited to say that this week is looking productive as well!

I was able to finish Lori Holt’s Quilty Barn and Furrow block for my 30s Farm Quilt.

This block wouldn’t have taken so long if it hadn’t been for the flying geese. It was one corner that just wouldn’t behave; I spent 2 hours working on it and that was just during one sitting. I ended up getting it to behave a little better but its not as good as I would like. I hate flying geese. Remind me to avoid them at all costs.

For the quilt, I’m planning on doing a medallion type design. The center will actually be three large blocks; this is the final center block. The general layout will be something like this (please ignore the shadows!):

The bare spaces will be filled with farm-y stuff. That’s where you guys come in! What kind of animals would you see on a farm? (Ones that can be pieced into 5-6″ blocks.). My list includes cows, sheep, chickens, and pigs… Any ideas?

I’m so excited to see how this turns out!

  1. What a cute block! I totally hear your frustration on Flying Geese though. I recently picked up one of those new Loc Bloc rulers to help me out, and it made a huge difference! I definitely recommend them. Happy Sewing!
