A stunning abstract free form quilt made with greens, creams, blues, and browns to give you the feeling of the barn bones left behind when a barn is taken down.

The lack of discipline in piecing this quilt is what gives it the stunning effect it has. You can 'see' the bones of the barn without actually seeing them.

PLEASE NOTE: This piece is currently hanging in a show at Java Dock in Port Washington, WI. Please feel free to still purchase it but it will not be able to be shipped until January 15th, 2015.

Dimensions: 30" x 42.5"

The story behind 'Barn Bones'

As soon as I saw the challenge:
http://www.persimondreams.com/2012/01/project-quilting-season-3-challenge-1-architectural-elements.html
I knew I would be using the barn down the road from me as my inspiration. All that is left of it is the bones and the contrast with the fields and sky is so dramatic I knew it was the perfect inspiration - shown in the fifth picture.

I created this 'Free form quilt' using the techniques I read bout it the book 'create your own free-form quilts' by Rayna Gillman.

I love the book and the concept behind the quilts in the book instantly. I love that it's completely free and you don't think as you create - exactly by method! Every piece in this quilt was found in my scrap bin. I can't wait to make another quilt like this with even more scraps!

It kept growing bigger and bigger (on its own) so I finally just had to stop. I felt that it needed more dark brown (the 'barn bones') so I did some raw edge appliqué to add a bit more depth to the piece.

When it came to the quilting I also went with the free-form approach. I love how tight stitching looks and feels so I did that randomly, in different directions all over the piece.
