Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month creative journey along America’s backcountry roads as we bring you "The Patchwork Barn Quilt," a fabulous quilt designed especially for TQS by Edyta Sitar. A spectacular medallion quilt featuring a barn nestled amongst rows of ‘crops’ (blocks). Edyta’s design inspiration was the result of observing the painted quilt blocks on the side of barns as she traveled across the country.
Known for her love of colorfully elegant scrap quilts, Edyta has this time, used her magic touch by combining a wide variety of blue and cream fabrics set against a creamy background. The resulting design is a stunning, but quieter scrap quilt that is sure to be a family favorite for generations to come. Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns.
The first two months' completed blocks. Block No. 5 caused me an entire week-end of grief - stitching, unpicking, stitching, unpicking, ad infinitum!! - hence the seams on that block are anything but the desired 1/4" in uniformity!!! Only when I had completed those three little monsters did I discover the very helpful post by bbquiltmaker], advising that there was a bit of a discrepancy in measurements - many thanks for sorting out that issue! I had begun to despair of my piecing skills prior to that!
