Grace County Quilt / Pattern & Pastel Kit option

Write a Review

The Barn Quilt Tour of Adams County, Ohio is a real thing and the inspiration behind our newest collection of Barn Raising Quilt patterns.   On a recent drive through Ohio, I couldn't help but notice colorful quilt squares painted on the side of weathered & chippy painted barns.   With many miles ahead of me, I began to investigate these beautiful works of art.    This is what I learned.

{ In Adams County, 20th Century ‘Mail Pouch’ ads adorning Ohio barns are being snuffed out by a 21st Century phenomenon – Barn Quilt Squares. The painted Barn Quilt Squares began when Donna Sue Groves wanted to create something to honor her mother’s passion, quilting, and did so with a large painting on the side of their barn. This sparked a movement that has swept Adams County. Adding to the serenity and charm of a lazy rural drive amidst the foothills of Appalachia, the “clothesline” of quilts highlights the adventure with its colorful display of unique artistry dotting the countryside. }

Inspired, I began to cut up fat quarters to replicate these massive works of art.   Yes, they're quick, easy and not much to them.  But as I shared with one customer, sometimes you just need to color with jumbo crayons.   

Grace Country Star is the second in our pattern series.   It takes just 8 fat quarters and 2 yards of background fabric plus a yard for the added border.   

The pattern is available as a digital download.    Order the kit right here and we'll include a complimentary print version. 

Our quilt is shown in Kaffe Fasset fabrics in both bright or pastel grey.   Your order will be filled with the pastel Kaffe grey version.   Bright version is sold out.

We hope you'll join our barn raising tour and quilt a long with us in 2018.

    This pattern is easy for a beginner with bias work, or quick for an advanced sewer! Perfect quilt top finished when time is tight on schedule! Works great with a FQ pack!
