CLUE # 3 – PINE TREE
AND BARN BLOCKS
Everyone loves a big country barn! They come in all shapes, sizes and colors, which is why, it makes the perfect addition to our Harvest Festival Mystery Quilt! I love the idea of a charming, calico barn, quilt block. Whether you choose pretty little posies, graceful ginghams, or gentle geos, your vintage barn won’t be shabby, just Chic! There are two blocks in our clue this week; In addition to the barn we have added a stately PINE TREE block. The size is equal to the barn and points away, toward the rest of the quilt, adding some balance and movement. I hope you have gathered a nice assortment of greens from our color bundles, you’re going to need them!
MAKE YOURS UNIQUE!
Our beautiful barn has a Painted Pinwheel Quilt Block hanging on the front (As all barns of quality are sure to have…*wink*) and an opportunity to be creative! You can leave the barn door open, insert “X” doors, or fill it with some animal friends! We used the Vintage Farm Girl Books by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet, to make our BARN BLOCK come to life!
PRO TIP FOR PERFECT TRIANGLES!
This darling pine tree is made with a handful of plain squares and half-square triangles (HST). For perfect HST every time, check out Sandy’s YouTube Tutorial on a variety of ways to make HST. See Week Two of the Christmas Delight Mystery Quilt, where she shows you how to make fast, easy and perfect HST.
