Our newest barn quilt, the Village Square was inspired by the small town I grew up in in New York. One main street went through the center of town with beautiful old homes, a country store, a library, fire station and the community church. No gas stations or movie theaters, and definitely no big box stores. Whenever we visit, no matter how much time has passed, it remains unchanged.
I love those small village squares and because I am from New York, the big pines had to be make a statement in this quilt. I am working on a fabric quilt version of this and a pattern book too, which should be out the first of the year. It will also include templates for wreaths, mini barn quilts and lettered signs.
For now, this holiday season, the simple Village Square Barn Quilt is in The Shop in three gorgeous sizes. I can't wait for the orders to come, because this is one of the funnest barn quilts to paint. It really is magical, which is what this season is all about.
We send our love to you and hope you are enjoying the beginning of the holiday season. Remember to take some time to rest amid all the celebrating....a little time to dream and for sure some time to create something new.
