Home Sweet Home Part 6

When I wanted to make an American style barn for my penny rug I had to go no further than Linda's wonderful blog Quilts in the Barn for inspiration...
...and copy the actual barn in her garden.  So here it is -  Part 6.  You can down load the templates HERE.
Cut out the pieces on the pattern sheet in your chosen colours.  Cut the piece of red felt that you have removed for the door way in half from top to bottom.  This will form the doors.  Mark the middle of each door.  Cut 1/4" strips of white felt and sew into two two crosses on each door.
Then sew white strips around each door.
Sew your barn to the background.  Cut 1/4" strips to for the door lintel and roof edge.  Attach in place.  Now sew on the doors.
Cut a rectangle 2" x 2 1/2".  Chain stitch the timbers to divide the panes of glass then sew white strips around the window.  Sew in place.
Sew on the snow and the snowman and dress him however you wish.

Part 7 will be in my August 13th post.
I'm off to spend the day with little Henry.
See you tomorrow for
