Barn Raising...

The Quilty kind...

 I am so excited! 

Lori Holt from Bee in My Bonnet is hosting a Quilty Barn Along.  

Each barn is made with a 6 1/2 inch quilt square.

She has tutorials for blocks or you can use orphaned quilt squares. 

My Mom called and said that she had a bunch of quilt squares made from 1930's 

reproduction fabric and asked if I would like some to use in the quilt along.  

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Mom put them in the mail and they came on Saturday.

Thank you Mom!
I am so excited to use the blocks that my Mom pieced.  

It will make this fun quilt-a-long so special.  

Lori has put together a great Tutorial and Flickr Group.  
I hope to one day have a big Barn quilt like this on the side of our barn.

Until then I will be happily stitching little Quilty Barns!


  1. I *love* your barn!! This will be such a fun quilt!!
    What a treat to have so many lovely old blocks! :o)

  2. Dropping by from Quilt Story - love your block and those repo fabrics are gorgeous :)

  3. I think your barn is going to be wonderful. And how neat that is will be a project you and your mother both had a hand in.

  4. I can't wait to make my barn, maybe I'll make it today! Yours looks great, isn't it nice you don't have to make the 6 inch blocks?

  5. Love the barn and love your pictures. So colorful!!!

  6. Very cute barn block. And you definitely scored with the blocks from your mom.

  7. Wow! So cute, your barn blocks will look amazing with those 30's prints :) I'm hoping to join in soon as well. xo

  8. How fun to use your mother's blocks in this project. I'm tempted to junp on this barn-along. May be I start now.

  9. Aww, what a fantastic use of your mom's squares! I love the way the little barn looks!!

  10. How exciting to receive all those blocks from your mother. The Barn quilt-along sounds interesting. Can't wait to see how you put all your blocks together.

  11. What fun you already have some block to go in your barns! What a good mum you have.
    Love Leanne

  12. Beautiful block and how fun to have all the small ones from your mom! Thanks for sharing.
