I don't have a barn to hang it on, but I'm going to make myself a barn quilt to put on my deck right outside the sliding glass door in my dining room.
I have been wanting to make one of these for a couple of years and two years ago I bought the a 24" square piece of wood for this project, but I never went any further with it. Today I went to Lowe's and bought all the rest of my supplies to finish this project. This is what I bought today:
1. Wood glue to seal the edges of the wood.
2. A quart of latex primer.
3. A paint brush.
4. A quart of purple paint (should have bought an 8 oz. sample instead).
5. A quart of light grey paint (should have bought an 8 oz. sample instead).
6. A quart of varnish.
I already have the piece of wood and I have painter's tape.
I'm going to use the hunter star block for my barn quilt. It will be a light grey and dark purple. I never bought paint before and I should have bought 8 oz. samples of each paint color instead of the quart of each paint color I did buy. I'm going to have a ton of paint leftover. Ugh.
Here's the hunter's star block.
This will be fun.
