Now I like my barn a lot more. Here's the after picture. It looks more like a barn and less like a church. I put the trim around the pumpkin advertisement and inside the barn door for added dimension. Three more pumpkins added more whimsy and color.
Here's the before picture.
I hadn't planned on spending a WHOLE day on my barn renovation.....but now I'm glad I did. Since I've spent so many months designing and appliqueing, what's another day in the life of this quilt? It's all the little details that define a quilt, and possibly the quilter.
Each pattern will include this pumpkin label which is printed on archival ink on sateen fabric from Olde America Antiques. I love their selection, the customer service is wonderful, and they make a great product.
Today I'm going to try to finish the scarecrow and get some more of the sections sewn together. I won't be doing an extreme makover on the scarecrow, but he does need a face so he can see the crows in the pumpkin patch! The big reveal will be soon.....I hope.
