Great Instructions for Painting Your Own Barn Quilts!
Do you have a door in a garage or outbuilding with a broken pane of glass, or two? When both windows broke on an old garage door Christine from The DIY Dreamer replaced them with barn quilts. The result is so eye-catching and charming.
We love that this idea can be used for windows too, and not just doors. Or dress up an outside wall with your own DIY barn quilt. You’ll find other ideas for displaying them both inside and out here.
While the barn quilts look great with Christine’s shabby chic door, they’ll be just as nice on newer doors or hung just about anywhere.
This idea can also work with doors that have large flat panels instead of glass. In that case, you may need to paint the barn quilts directly on the door.
Christine provides excellent instructions for painting barn quilts. To make your own, for whatever use, choose a quilt block and paint colors you love, and follow her directions in the following article.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
