Village Square Barn Quilt Pattern

Village Square Barn Quilt Pattern

One of our most loved barn quilts is the Village Square Barn Quilt.  We designed this pattern several years ago and have joyfully been commissioned to paint many of them for cities and friends around the country.  It is a perfect holiday barn quilt with the center town square shinning with a bright star, and little houses around with tall multi-colored pines in each corner.

Sugar Maple Barn Quilt

Our new fall barn quilt design is the Sugar Maple and it is by far my favorite fall barn quilt I have ever designed and painted.  At each step of the process I fell more in love with the simplicity of the design, but the repeat pattern brought even more depth, and then the color!  The Prairie Paint 2021 Fall Collection was amazing on this barn quilt.   The Simple Cream was the base, with it's warm white and the deep pigment, it set off the colors of Sugar Maple and Sweet Potato Pie.  Then the border or frame, we usually stain...
