I have had so much fun over the last year making these Barn Blocks each month. The piecing of each Barn Blocks had so much variety, and often included a lot of tiny piecing, which you all know I love ;) It was fun to watch the pile of Barn Blocks grow and wonder how it was all going to come together. And when Fat Quarter Shop shared the finishing pattern with the tiny star cornerstones, I was over the moon!!! Aren't they just the perfect way to finish this quilt up ;)
When it came time to quilt it, I decided on a current favorite on an all over Loose Feathers design. I just love how it flows across the quilt. I also used a favorite thread, 402 So Fine Pearl, which blended perfectly with all that white, and even blended in with the black prints as most of them have a little white on them. And it pops so great on the cornerstone black stars!!! I just love it!!!
And you can't tell from the picture, but this is also a Scrappy Binding!!!! I dug through my little case of binding scraps and was able to find enough solid black leftover pieces to make an entire black binding. Ya, I make a lot of solid black bindings :) So yippee for using up all the scraps!!!
And that is my Sew Sampler Barn quilt and I just love, love, love it!!!! Mine finishes at 52" x 68" so it will make a great lap quilt, just perfect for a wedding present. I can't wait for the next wedding that is held out at a local barn in town. Wouldn't this just make the perfect gift for a couple who has their reception at a barn!!! It makes me just giggle to think about it ;)
And now, I can't wait to see what the new 2019 pattern will be for the Sew Sampler Box!!! 2018 is officially all wrapped up now, and I am just waiting (not patiently) by the mailbox to see what 2019 will bring. So excited!!!
