Jen Buettner – Cre8tive Quilter
Wisconsin Quilt Blocks on Barns – Block of the WeekThe Summer of 2009 is when I first became aware of Quilt Blocks on Barns in Wisconsin. While a few of these programs are just beginning, all of them have plans to expand. As many of you can tell, I’ve become just a bit obsessed!! When I started making the blocks from the pictures I have taken, I received a few questions where I got the patterns so I decided I better get busy writing the patterns and share them.
I’ve already visited 84 barns which means you will be able to decide which blocks you want to make and which ones you don’t.
While there are many ways to put a block together, most of the blocks in this program will be paper pieced which will keep them nice and accurate. None of the blocks that I’ve drafted so far would I call difficult, just time consuming…after all, they’re 6” blocks!
Hopefully your quilt will take on your own personality. Mine is going to be completed within the same general colors that the barn quilts have been painted in. I’ve been using tone on tone fabrics. However, this is your quilt and I encourage you to use whatever fabrics and colors that you would like to use.
My goal is to post a block each Wednesday. This program will continue for the minimum of one year but will continue on as long as there is interest and additional Quilts on Barns going up in Wisconsin. This isn’t the final draft by any means, it’s a work in progress.
The possibilities are endless! Will you make all the blocks or only a few?? Join me!
