I hope that everyone
had a wonderful
Yesterday after my sugar rush
wore off
from eating too many jelly beans,
I pulled out my stack
of Moda Bella Solids
and started working on
my Quilt Barn Block #2.
{I am participating in

I really went back and forth
on what my next color selection
would be.
In the end
I went with my gut!
I decided to make all of the barns
Originally I thought
that I might make some brown or grey barns
I felt that it would detract
from each of the quilt blocks....too busy for an all solid quilt.
So, I decided to keep the barns red
and change the color of the roof
and barn door in each block.
For Quilt Barn #2,
I decided to go with a light brown
roof and barn door.
The quilt block
in Quilt Barn Block #2
is called Farm Fresh Flower.
Here is my version:
Here is my completed
Quilt Barn Block #2:
A closer look at the roof:
Quilt Barn Block #1 & Quilt Barn Block #2:
I am CRAZY about this quilt
and I can't wait
to complete it!
Thanks Lori for creating this Barn A Long.
Speaking of barns,
I need to get moving
because the group
is already on Barn#3
and I think that Barn #4 will be out shortly.

  1. I love your rendition in solids--- great idea... the Amish girls will be proud.... Have fun.

  2. love your solid barns! These are so much fun to make. I think we have another week before barn 4 so you have some time!

  3. And I did the opposite. I kept my barns red but all the prints are going to be different. My roof and door/windows are going to be the same. I need to get on it myself. I'm only making a wallhanging size so I just need 4 barns. But I'm debating my quilt block for my last barn. Not sure what I'm going to do yet.

  4. Barn Building is tough, heavy work - don't over do it. (wink)

  5. Yours Barnes are so cute I wanted to do this QAL too and you may have just convinced me to go for it. I loved that you used solids.

  6. Oh I just love those barns and barn quilts!!
