Barn Quilt Contest 2013

Have you ever seen a Barn Quilt?  Do you have a big quilt block painted on your barn, silo, corn crib or shed?  I wish I did.  In fact, I've only ever seen ONE actual barn quilt!  But if I did have one, I'd love it to look like this:

Bloomin' Starflower
Yep.  Looks terrific. 
  
I kinda like this one too! 

Midwest Star

These are my entries in AccuQuilt's Barn Quilt Design Contest this year.  It's a fun way to play in my EQ (Electronic Quilt) program, and has paid off a couple of times.  I always try to keep the designs simple, something that I would paint on a barn or shed door; something that would translate well into an actual quilt.


These two designs (#25 and #14) made it in to the Top 100 for this year's contest!  Winners will be announced at the AccuQuilt booth in Paducah at the end of the month.

Happy Quilting!
