I'm stoked to be in a group of such creative people!
So I thought I would share a project I have tried to roll out as a painting workshop to less enthusiasm in my community.
I found some 3D barn quilt wood cutouts that just really sparked something in me.
I love the possibilities!
3D refers to the fact that there are 12 of the diamond shapes that can be added to the flat base, that already has the pattern laser etched into it.
So the grey one I actually painted, and used tissue paper for the patterned pieces.
The others I have designed digitally. I am in love the with idea I came up with on the sunflower quilt:
I filled the whole background with the image, then added the colored shapes on top.
Oh man! This is such a super fun idea! I so wish I had some interest from people!
I might end up just painting them all myself and trying to sell them as finished pieces.
A barn quilt, what the heck?
From what I can find on it: 20 years ago, Donna Sue Mills, of Ohio, decided to honor her mother by painting a quilt on her barn.
Neighbors loved the idea and it spread in rural communities to become a popular sight along "barn trails". Some are in honor of loved ones, others for decoration and community interest in adding to the barn trail. If you ever visit Northeast Colorado, you will find some along US Highway 6!

The idea of the barn quilts is really cool. I have seen some and thought what a good Idea. I am a rather novice quilter and I am so slow at quilting turning my favorite patterns into a painting project is really inspiring. I've designed a stained glass fabric wall hanging sun and I have a painted sunflower series project. First there was 1 flower then 2 flowers then sunflowers 3 and a friend I should continue the series. I have sketches for 4 and 5 to get on the board.

Hi Sherry! That series sounds awesome!

The idea sounds great to me! Perhaps you can make up kits and then present it online? I have to say that I’m not a quilter and I can’t sew so I don’t know how feasible this is at all. Good luck with it though!

Thanks Cheryl! I'm going to try some other offerings and see how it goes

Really enjoyed looking at those. I love how diamond shapes come together to make those arrow-type shapes. I am really into sacred geometry so this makes me happy!
