Nordic Star Barn Quilt

Most of the Barn Quilts you see hanging in homes and on barns across our country has a meaning or symbolism.  One of my favorite patterns in the Nordic Star.  We have painted this pattern for Christmas and have shipped many to customers  of Scandinavian decent, however, this version in black and white is my favorite.  

This pattern represents the desire we all have to follow light in our lives.  The outer arrows or points point to the inner star, just as we all have a light in our lives that we can look to.   I love wall art that reminds of something good and this star is my favorite.

Wild Flower Hoop Art Embroidery

New to the shop this week are two floral embroidery hoops and kits which are so gorgeous and springy!  The Wild Pansy and the Willow and Rose Hoop Art Embroideries are now offered two ways, as a finished piece and as a kit and they are in The Shop.   So whether you want to make your own or purchase a finished hoop the you can choose.  So many of you have asked for the options and we are thrilled to offer them to you.

The Wild Pansy is hand embroidered on a piece of vintage linen that I was blessed to find from my husband's grandmother's quilt shop.  She passed away and left her fabrics in storage.  As the family was deciding whether to toss it or not, they asked if I wanted it and of course I was thrilled to have it.  It was two huge bolts of this gorgeous off white linen weave.  I love to stitch on it because it is holds all of my stitches on the top and they always look gorgeous.  

Our kits include a piece of this cherished linen, a wood hoop, scissors, floss, needle, our stitching guide and a link to a tutorial for how to embroider each stitch.  I love to include a variety of flosses and tools so you can try something new with each kit.

If you want one already embroidered, our hoops come framed in a stained hoop with the back sealed to display in a stand on to hang.  Each piece is signed and dated and one of a kind.

Ready to Paint Barn Stars

On our travels through the east farm land we fell in love with the barn stars that are often seen on homes and barns.  Many times they are mixed together in a collections and range from very colorful to plain black.  We wanted to create a collection of Barn Stars that would look beautiful in your own farmhouse styled homes.

We created two pre-finished stars, one in farmhouse white and one multi-color.  Then on your requests, we created a Ready To Paint Barn Star that comes assembled and ready for you to finish however you wish.  The aged bolt in the center is secured to the star and each star comes ready to hang.  The finished size is 20".  Perfect to hang in your home or on a porch or barn door.

Our pre-finished Barn Stars are each hand painted on reclaimed wood and sealed for indoor or outdoor use.  They will look beautiful for years to come.  Each star is signed and dated with no two stars being exactly the same.  As always custom colors can be ordered to fit your colors perfectly.

To order these barn stars go to The Shop and you will see the options.  If you want a custom size or color shoot us an email and we will be happy to help you get the star you want.  I'm making a huge one for the peak of our home and will post pictures as we get it finished.  Have a wonderful week!

Rainbow of Patterns

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are feeling a little bit of spring coming your way.  We are starting to see colors pop up and so we are releasing our two most colorful barn quilt patterns in the shop this week.

You can now find Rainbow Hearts and the gorgeous Double Bear Paw patterns in the shop in the pattern sections.  Each pattern comes with our How to Paint a Barn Quilt guide and step by step instructions, as well as a pattern that can be sized to any size barn quilt board you want to paint on.

For the sample of the Rainbow Heart I painted on one of our Framed Barn Quilt Boards and love the way the wood frame set off the hearts.

This custom Double Bear Paw was painted on one of our Ready to Paint Barn Quilt Boards and it is one of our most popular pieces.  In the patterns you will learn our finishing technique to assure that your barn quilts will be safe from fading inside or outside of your home or barn!  For additional helps you can view our Tweetle Dee You Tube Channel and watch how we paint our barn quilts.

Have a wonderful week and remember "You Can" is the theme for this week.
