Floral Barn Quilts

Sometimes you dream of an idea and hope that it works out the way you imagine and when it does you just want to jump with excitement!  Many of you know I have a line of vintage poster signs that I wholesale to Sundance.  I love the technique of taking old images and transferring the ink to paint.  

As much as I love painting barn quilts, I also love the patterns and textures of fabric.  One night while I was trying to sleep, the cross over idea came to me to use the same technique I use for the poster signs for my barn quilts, using our favorite fabrics.  I also am using vintage wall paper because I just love them!

The finished product looks like it a painted floral that has been there for years.  No, these are not decoupaged on and it is quite a tricky process.  No two are ever the same...but I kind of like that.  

We have several different styles and patterns in process and we will be adding them to the shop for a big Pre-Mother's Day Sale next week when we return from teaching in Oklahoma. I am so excited about these beauties and I hope you are too!  


Pretty Poppy Wall Collection

It's still a little chilly and gloomy outside,  and spring is trying it's hardest to burst through.   The other day I needed some color and decided to paint a few more of the Pretty Poppy Collection and get them on the wall.  

Pretty Poppy Wall Collection

I just love this little set on mini barn quilts all hung together.  It is like a garden burst out of my wall!  Each mini barn quilt is hand painted and sealed for use indoor or out.  I hung mine in my mudroom, but I jeep imagining them together in a little girls room or a laundry room, breakfast nook, sunroom, etc.  Of course they would look equally charming over a potting bench on a porch or shed.

Pretty Poppy Blue Barn Quilt

As always custom colors are available upon request.  Once they are hung together it makes a 38" x 38" wall "quilt".  The Pretty Poppy Wall Collection is available in The Shop today and if ordered before midnight's Free Shipping Friday! 

I hope you have a fabulous holiday weekend and that you are feeling the little burst of spring wherever you are!!!

Pretty Poppy Barn Quilts

It is April and spring is here and I promised a new mini-barn quilt for the season and I think these little Pretty Poppy Barn Quilts will last well into fall with no water, weeding, or fuss!  

They are a darling 12" x 12" square, hand painted and sealed for indoor or outdoor use.  They also come with a convenient hanger in the back so they are ready to go.

The only trouble with these little cuties is one isn't enough.  They look so cute together on my fence.  They are $30.00 a piece or $95.00 for the collection of four!

I just may add a few other colors to the collection and make a nine square wall quilt with them.  What do you think?  I think it would be darling in a little girls room, a laundry room, hallway and of course on a barn/shed.  We can't forget they are called barn quilts.  

I hope you love these Pretty Poppy Barn Quilts as much as I do.  They are available in The Shop today and ready to ship this week!  Happy spring!!!
