Paint a Barn Quilt Saturday March 9th

What's a Barn Quilt? A larger piece of wood painted to look like a quilt block. Typically they are very large and usually are placed on the exterior of a barn, house, garage or shed. Barn Quilts began in the early 2000's in Ohio and now many states have Barn Quilt Trails you can follow, including Shawano County in Wisconsin. Our barn quilts will be the size of 20 inch by 20 inch. Most barn quilts are painted with simple geometric shapes, like squares, rectangles and triangles. They usually are painted in solid colors. The simplicity in shape and the vibrancy of solid colors make these blocks easily seen from afar and easy to create. Don’t have a barn? A screen porch will do. No Experience is necessary for this workshop. All materials provided-you just need to get it home in your car.

Saturday March 9th 9am-2pm Bring or get some lunch. Family groups can work on one.
