Paint Your Own Barn Quilt with Suzi Parron
Saturday, August 27 - 10:00am - 3:00pm or 
Sunday, August 28 - 10:00am - 3:00pm

Do you love barn quilts? Have you always wanted to make your own? Join the barn quilt movement by creating your own painted quilt block. You will begin with a pre-primed board and go through each step—drafting, taping, and painting, with careful attention to detail. The workshop lasts about 4 hours. You will leave with a finished quilt block or with one last color (which will be provided) to add at home. Ready for show and tell at your next guild or club meeting! 

Note that the workshop includes a pre-primed 2' x 2' wood board, paint, brushes and marking tape. We'll also have suggested patterns for you to transfer. All you have to bring is a yardstick, a pencil and a desire to have fun and create something great.

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: This is a barn quilt painting class (not sewing!). Under Suzi Parron's expert guidance, you will transfer a pattern and paint your very own barn quilt block. The board is 2 feet x 2 feet.
Materials Included: All supplies are included except a yard stick and pencil!
Instructor: Suzi Parron
Instructor Bio: I stumbled across my first barn quilt in 2008; I immediately looked for a book with more information on barn quilts, I found that none existed--so I decided to write one! Quilt trail founder Donna Sue Groves provided me with lots of contacts and background information, and I set out. After two years of weekends and my summers off while teaching, I finished the book, Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement. The book follows the quilt trail as it expanded and tells the stories of those who have created barn quilts. Within two years, so many new quilt trails had merged that it was clear that another book was in order. I set out again and traveled all of the way to California and back, visiting quilt trails. Following the Barn Quilt Trail was released in May of 2016.
All inclusive! Includes wood board, paint, foam brushes, pattern transfers and marking tape!
