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!
