Barn Quilts Fabric coming in August 2021

Baldwins Book Barn in West Chester, PA

THE FABRIC  INSPIRATION

I didn’t grow up on a farm or even in the country but I have an early affinity for barns. My dad was a college professor and an avid reader. I have many memories of trips to Baldwin’s Book Barn – a used bookstore housed in the most amazing dairy barn near our home in West Chester, PA.

Built in 1822 this 5 story barn had so many nooks and crannies, odd staircases and interesting doors to explore! My love of barns began with books – an unusual combination I know, but one that has me fascinated with the sizes, shapes and stories of barns to this day.

“Barn Quilts” will include 14 prints and 2 panels: one with 6 barns for placemats or pillows and one large barn quilt panel. 

There will be a free quilt pattern from Riley Blake Designs, “The Quilt Trail”, that will also be available as a boxed kit.

Watch the video to see a preview of the prints and some samples of projects I’ll be sharing when the fabric comes out.

I hope you enjoyed this preview of the Barn Quilts fabrics coming to stores in August 2021! I’m excited to see what you create!
