Quilt Shot Block #109 ~ Dad's Barn

Dad's Barn
8x9 inches
A "design as you go block" improv by Your's Truly, Joy
for another memory quilt of Mother & Dad's clothing
"Showing Memories of Our Home Life"

 First a single 3D Flying Geese was made.



Then like the Wonky Log Cabin process
pieces were added.
I love just adding on without having to measure.
Makes me feel creative.
Like an artist throwing the paint brush around!




 







 The brown strip was a leftover from a previous memory quilt.
I thought the results of Dad's hard work sweat stained area of the fabric
 fit right in to show the usual dirt/gravel area 
that always led up to the barns.
More strips will be added later to make a 12x12 inch square.

  1. I love the sentiments behind what you're doing. Definitely a throwback to the way our ancestors made quilts out of what they had.

    1. I do get a lot more gratification out of making quilts the original way than cutting up brand new yardage of fabric. Thank you.

  2. I love this. Not sure I have any old shirts at the moment, but could easily make it out of my stash.
