Description

This was one of the quickest quilts I've ever made. I was poking around on Pinterest and was led to this article featuring these two barn quilts, located in Adams County, Ohio. I first read about barn quilts on Ryan Walsh's blog, I'm Just a Guy Who Quilts, when he featured a barn quilt calender here. I had seen one before in Holmes County, Ohio, but hadn't thought much about it. I was immediately inspired by this take on a barn quilt, and started thinking about translating the concept into a quilt.

This quilt is made up entirely of one giant quilt block. The block is generally known as the Starflower block. It's a block I was already familiar with and fond of. I didn't hesitate and dug right into my vintage sheet stash. I thought at first I might go the same route as the barn quilts and go with a monochromatic color scheme, but I ended up choosing a rainbow of colors instead!

The top came together really quickly and rounds off at 68" square. I backed it in one of my favorite vintage sheets.
