Round Red Barn

Here’s my third new pattern that will debut at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. It is called “Round Red Barn.” This is the first in a series of small art quilt patterns I am designing based on some of my photos. This piece depicts a fabulous barn at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont that my family visited last August. The Shelburne Museum has several quilt collections, including an amazing exhibit of very old American quilts.

The pattern contains a full-sized template with stitching guidelines. I’ve taught several classes for guilds using this photo, and it is a hit with people interested in art quilting but not sure where to start. Several have learned the technique from me, and gone on to turn their own photos into works of art in fabric and thread.

The retail price for this pattern is $10; it will be on my website soon.
