It was a flattering surprise when Linda contacted me sometime back in 2013 about a possible collaboration on an article she wanted to write for American Quilter.
Having ties with AQS that went all the way back to 1989 and my earliest quilting memories, I was happy to play, and paint along!
The pattern I chose to make was a bit of a departure from my usual preference for stars.
Asked for something a bit on the "modern" side, I came up with a fun chevron on a 24" x 24" board.
I used colors I had on hand and am happy with how it all came out.
Originally slated to be published in the Spring of 2014, I was very busy with painting, photographing and transferring instructions in the Fall of 2013.
It happens in the publishing world that things get shifted around, and the barn quilt article was temporarily shelved through 2014.
So it is with pleasure that I can finally announce we finally made it to print! I look forward to receiving my copy of the March 2015 issue of American Quilter, in which you will find Linda's article featuring my barn quilt, with instructions how to make one of your own!
