Barn Quilt Spotting


Hubby took this photo on his way home from Cleveland last week. It's in Brecksville, Ohio. He pulled off the highway and took this shot for me, hoping it turned out well enough to blow up and frame.  It's not really frame-worthy with the drabby-day background and the fuzziness, but I love it.

Ohio Star block - has always been one one of my faves. And a red barn with an attached silo? Bucolic - that's the word I was looking for.

And I wanted to share pics of the doll quilt I got in the swap we did with our Cincy Modern Quilt Guild. I shared pictures of what I made (string block with prairie point binding), but I never shared the quilt that I got!

 How cute is this?! It was made by Christy - a newer quilter. She found the pattern online, but I forgot to ask what the block name is or where she got the pattern.

She did the echo quilting - her first attempt. It looks so great! I really love the slight imperfection of the lines.


And I love the back fabric. So clever and cheerful - very fitting with the front. You could stare at it for an hour just reading all of the words. Well, I could, at least, 'cause I'm a closet nerd.

And my main sewing supply storage armoire is lookin' like a hot mess! Will begin the clean-up tomorrow after daughter's swim meet. Really.

  1. Love the Ohio barn photo, gray day and fuzziness and all.

    FYI, that star pattern is Laced Star. You'll find an 8" version of it on the Quilter's Cache web site. (And, yea, I recognized it immediately because it was once a Lotto Block.
