Calico Barn Block

Calico Barn block is another finished block from the Old Barns quilt. These blocks are turning out to be fun to work on even though the roofs take a bit of figuring to do them! Different angles and such make it necessary to do them with freezer paper templates. It's kind of a learn as you go thing for me--I'm learning to take those lines on the freezer paper and the 1/4" seam allowances very seriously!!!!!

Also finished another quilt for Project Linus--this one is called Tea Party in the Park and is quite colorful.

We had a large group at Sit N Sew Frayed Edges today at Quilt Mercantile in Celeste--every chair was filled--lots of sewing and gabbing going on!! We have such a good time together on Tuesdays and really do get a lot accomplished. I finished embroidering another purse block today on Heirloom Romance--just have the beadwork left to do and then only 2 more purse blocks to go! Just a few more crazy quilt blocks to do some embroidery on and then I can sew it together!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
