The Quilty Barn along...Silo Barn 4 and Egg Basket Block Tutorial!!!...



I hope all of you are caught up after
 our short break because it's time to plow ahead with the farmin!:)
YaY!



6" Egg Basket Block

I designed a basket block for this barn...
it's really no surprise that I love basket blocks.
I always have to make a basket quilt with 
pretty much every one of my collections!
And besides...
every working farm uses them:)
Wouldn't you love to gather eggs in this cute little basket?


Okay...onto the cutting!



Background too!



Sew ...


Trim...


Press towards the triangles.











Sew Easy Corner Triangles onto the 3 trim pieces like this...
For the one in the center...
 sew... trim and press
 before you can add another ECT onto the other side...
















YaY!
Egg basket complete.
It should measure 6 1/2" at this point.


Now build a barn around your block!

I chose to build a gray barn around my egg basket...
for that vintagey weathered look:)
It's just the right shade to compliment the
rosy pink and butter yellow egg basket:)


Wasn't that easy???


Did you know that I have pink and yellow sheep on my farm?
Today they are hanging out in the loft...
I wonder how they got all the way up there?...
and how will they get down?...haha


Silo Barn #4 complete...


and onto the design wall to join it's neighbors:)

Next Wednesday will be the original red barn for the first quilt
and a block I named 
"Summer Star"
along with a fun and easy method for making
quarter square triangles!

I hope you like my 
Egg Basket block...
let me know what you think!

Have a quilty kind of day my friends...
it's good to be back sewing with you!

Update:
This egg basket block 
is now in my book called 
Farm Girl Vintage.
I left the pictures 
in this tutorial up for those
 who have the book now 
and are doing the sew along!




Pin It!

I'm so glad you had a nice holiday Lori, but boy did I miss you on your blog. You were right though - in my sorrow - I just sewed and sewed and sewed and got a lot done. I'm on my last row of the Row Along Quilts (7 in all) and finished my 9 Barns in the Barn Along Quilt and am eager to tackle these new cutie Barn 'Door' Along Barns. Welcome Back!

another great block and you make them so easy. I have to say you give really great directions. I actually have finished my barn quilt. I used 4 of each barn and used the tractor in the middle! I also took the liberty of using 4.5 in blocks instead of 6.5 inch and used them on the silo instead of for the barn door. I really want to thank you for the great patterns.
