I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I've been toying with the idea... But all my barns are wayyyy overdo for a fresh coat. DH would go nuts if I just started painting patterns!

I really like the album quilt patterns.

Flygap, the "quilts" are painted on 2, 4x8 sheets of plywood then hung. That way it can be taken down and refreshed if need be. The best way I've learned to paint buildings is to start with the biggest wall and not worry about the others. Once the biggy is done, the others will seem much easier. People defeat themselves by thinking of doing the entire building all in one go. I am going to wind up with part painted projects because of the weather. Partly done is better than not done at all.
