Has anyone done this or have a barn quilt on their barn? It's origins were Pennsylvania.
I don't have one yet, but am seriously thinking of painting one. I would very very interested to see what you have and what you come up with.
My library is a great source for quilt patterns and quilt history too, especially Civil War quilts and Amish quilts.
Some folks around here do the regular barn quilts, but there is also a movement by some young people going on, where they paint the quilt onto a smooth piece of wood, then hang the wood on the barn.
Just like a traditional hung wall quilt.
