How to make barn quilts

Start by preparing your wood. Next, prime your wood. Then, use a pencil to lightly outline your quilt block onto the surface of the wood. Use painter’s tape to section off your first few blocks, and then begin painting them with your chosen colors. Continue taping off different sections and painting until all blocks are complete. Inspect each block for any corrections that may need to be made, and touch up accordingly. Lastly, add any hardware needed for hanging purposes.
