I started this one in response to a challenge over at Kim's Crafty Apple to make a barn quilt.  I finally managed to finish it up this week. 

(http://kimscraftyapple.blogspot.com/2012/02/project-quilting-season-3-challenge-4_26.html)


The finished front.


Here is the back side.

It is about 12 x 14 inches in size.  The fabrics include some hand dyed and quilter's cotton.  It is machine pieced and entirely hand quilted.

I'd say you definitely won the challenge because I saw the thumbnail and said to myself "Hey, that looks like a barn quilt!". We have many barn quilts in my rural area, and I always announce when I see one. Even if it's not a new one, lol.

Thanks everyone.  I appreciate your kind words. 

I'd say you definitely won the challenge because I saw the thumbnail and said to myself "Hey, that looks like a barn quilt!". We have many barn quilts in my rural area, and I always announce when I see one. Even if it's not a new one, lol.

This made me smile... DH kept trying to tilt it sideways.  He couldn't see the barn in it at all.  It is nice to know some else sees it.  Thanks.
