The barn is coming together for the Autumn quilt. I wanted to add more color, so I made a patchwork roof. This is far from finished, but it is together enough that I can show you what I'm working on.
Mr. Joe came up with the idea to put a pumpkin advertisement on the side of the barn. These wonderful antique canning labels are available at Olde America Antiques website. The quality of the prints are top notch. Eight arrived in the mail today and I was all ready to applique it right on the side of the barn.
I searched through my stash and found the best fabric to use as the hex sign for the barn. Sometimes when you rummage through your stash serendipity happens!
Another great find was the fabric for the top of the acorn. I knew what I wanted to use.....I won't tell you how long it took me to find this little scrap.....but it was worth the search.
I'll be filling in down at the shop today and Friday. Today I'm working with Lisa and we always manage to get into mischief. We conspire together and select fabric for a new kit, or create new fat eighth bundles. You know what they say, "When the boss is away, the mice will play!"
