Many barns throughout the country have quilts painted on the sides of their barns. This block is our homage to this tradition! We also found the cutest spool of thread button for the top of the weathervane. Then we hand stitched a bit of thread flying off the spool! The folk art Sunflower adds a bit of whimsy.

The Quilt, Cat in the window and the Barn Door fabric was designed especially for this block. You can purchase this fabric plus other speciality fabrics for the Barn blocks in our Little Red Barns Accessory Fabric Packet (ITEM #BARNS 107)! The spool of thread button is part of our Little Red Barns Button Pak (ITEM #BARNS 108) available for purchase.
18" x 13" finished block size. Easy piecing & fast fusible web applique. We used "Garden of Enchantment" fabric by Maywood Studio in our quilt.
This is Pattern 2 in a series of 6 patterns.
