Are you ready to build another barn?
It's already time for barn #2 of
The Quilty Barn Along
I decided to make a red gingham barn this time
because you all know about my on going love affair with gingham...
and if I had a real barn...
I'm seriously thinking
that I would have to
paint it red gingham:)
I decided to use one of my previously designed blocks
to go on the side of my gingham barn.
In the past I have called this block of mine several different names...
but for this quilt...
lets just call it a farm fresh flower:)
This is an easy peasy block.
Easy to cut...easy to sew!!
Start by sewing an easy corner triangle on opposite sides of each leaf square.
and press towards triangles like this.
Now you can go ahead and add another one on the outside corners.
Trim and press towards the triangles again...
and your leaves are done!
Sew the rectangles together and press towards the petals.
Now sew it into 3 rows just like you would a nine patch.
Press towards the leaves and the flower center so that
your seams are opposite and will sandwich together nicely:)
Sew all of the rows together and press
the final seams toward the flower center.
You made a cutie pie
farm fresh flower.
I always sew my strips around my block before I begin to build my barn.
I know if I like my
fabric choices before
the whole barn is built!
Lay your roofing and lumber supplies out on your
and build your barn!
As I have said...
all of the barns will be the same...
just different fabric and different 6" blocks..
Of course you can use different background fabric for each block if you want...
but I am using the same which is my standard
After I made block #2...
I went ahead and cut the background for the remaining 10 blocks
and put them in a labeled bag.
Blocks #1 and #2 together.
It looks like #1 has a new coat of paint and #2 has a vintagey weathered look...
sew cute together:)

I have already chosen my fabric for barn #3...
I just have to decide which block will go on the side!
I will post it two weeks from today:)
I have loved seeing all of your quilty barns so far!
Each one brings a smile to my face:)
Have a quilty barn kind of day my friends...
