My First Barn Quilt

This quilt has been weeks in the making by Dan and I. It was a fun project and I intend to make more.

The things I have learned:
  • Frog Tape works much better than blue Painters tape.
  • Check the mis-mixed paint shelves in your local paint departments. Menards has gallons for $5, Lowes charges $9. I also got some from the Habitat for Humanity Restore Shop for $2-3/quart. These were good colors, so I was happy to pay that.
  • Transfer some of the paint into a plastic throwaway container. Since you need 3-4 coats, it's much easier to get in to than a paint can.

Here are some in-progress pics:
