Join Eleanor Burns as she pays tribute to rural America’s Barn Quilt Blocks. She was inspired by the Barn Quilt Trails all over farmland USA. This fun tradition began in 2001 in Manchester, Ohio where a woman painted a quilt block on the family’s barn to honor her mother, an avid quilter! The local community joined in and soon painted quilt blocks on their barns. These barns have now become tourist’s attractions with maps pinpointing each barn location.
Learn a variety of new techniques as Eleanor demonstrates how to make the pieced barn blocks, each with a miniature quilt block pattern. Corn & Beans, Flying Kite, and Pinwheel are just a few of the block techniques included. Bonus projects for one-block repeat patterns round out this fun new Sampler quilt!
