Barn Quilts

My mom and I painted a bunch of these last summer, and this year we had to make two more. She wants to have one for each member of our family. Here’s what we did before, hanging on her shed.

This summer we painted a square for my little baby and my nephew…
Heres the one called Missouri Star in process… We tape and paint each color separately.
 And for my son… Chinese Lantern (He was born in Hong Kong, China) my mom is going with birth-place themes for the kids.

I love that we will have more to paint in the summers to come as more grandkids are added to the family.
