Wooden Quilt Block for my house.

Earlier this fall my DH and I were in the NC mountains, and adventured into Burnsville to find Needle Me This, a quilt store that had been featured in a quilt magazine. The entire shop was wonderful, but the entrance was spectacular. Right beside the front door is a beautiful painted 3'x3' quilt square, typical of what you see on barns in the NC mountains. I fell in love with that quilt block and knew that I wanted to do a smaller version of it with slightly different colors.

 Here is the beautiful quilt block at Needle Me This. I am staying in the same color range, however I am not using the white and light blue. On those points I am using the light and dark gold.... And then where you see the golds in the picture I am changing that to the light and dark greens. My quilt block will be 2'x2', and our house numbers will be displayed in the center diamond.

So, here is what I have to this point... Yes, I'm painting in the kitchen... on the granite counter-top... I think the blue tape is a nice touch! I painted the gold in just to help me eye it all and get an idea for what it will look like. I will tape it and paint it correctly... (don't worry) :-)

That's it for now... I'll post the finished block when it
is firmly attached to our house and proudly displaying the house numbers.

Keep stitchin' for the ones you love...

  1. What a great idea!!!!!!!!!!!! Going to the man cave to see if I can find some extra wood. Love it! Happy Holidays.

  2. What a terrific idea. There are a lot of barns in KY with quilt blocks adorning their sides also. I have been looking for something to hang by my front door that won't fade. This is just the ticket. In Michigan I had a quilted, and framed hanging that I displayed on my front porch for years and years. I had it on my KY house for a few months and it faded quite a bit. I think I will have to paint a quilt block like you are doing. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. Love it Mary , can't wait to see the finished project!

  4. Oh....it is fabulous, can't wait to see yours finished!
