I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to be a part of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour. Volume 10 is extra special because it is celebrating 1000 blocks! Be sure to read this entire post to learn about giveaways and prizes.
What better way to celebrate Volume 10 than getting my ten toenails painted with a special fall design?
I had a blast designing this quilt block. I absolutely love creating landscape quilts and adore barn quilts! Finding them reminds me of the excitement I experienced while hunting Easter eggs as a child. When I drive around the corner of a winding mountain road and see one, I hit the brakes and start shooting photos. It is a passion and yes, I will have to admit, even an obsession.
I am really excited about this block as I continue to design the quilt. The center medallion of my quilt will include a landscape scene with a covered bridge and Amish buggy in West Virginia Amish Country. I am in the process of designing fabric from my numerous photo shoots of a Barn Quilt Trail in West Virginia to go in this quilt.
After several trips to tour and take photos of the West Virginia barn quilts, I decided that I needed a barn quilt of my own. Of course, I had to pick the most complicated design. It is not completed in the above photo but now that I am finished, it was worth it!
If you like barn quilts, you will enjoy looking through the barn quilt photos on my webpage.
I thoroughly enjoy sharing my love of quilting by giving lectures and teaching quilting classes and workshops across the US. Please share my website and contact information with your local quilt guild, quilt shop and especially those who coordinate quilting events in your area.
Visit my website to see original quilt pattern designs, including my quilted couch! You will also enjoy seeing photos of my quilting retreats attended by quilters from a six state area who all say “It’s well worth the drive!”
