Join the Barn Quilt Movement
(Just in Time for the Holidays)


You’ve seen barn quilts displayed on buildings around town. Maybe you, or someone you know, would like one. Maybe you wish you could make one.

Yes, you CAN make one! Just choose your design. You can turn any quilt block you like into a barn quilt. Here are some Pinterest examples.

Dark Star Fabrics will give you step-by-step classroom assistance and all the materials. On request, we will be happy to draft your design on your board before the first session.

At the end of the three-day class, you will have a finished barn quilt, ready to display, plus the know-how to make more barn quilts on your own.

Come join the local Barn Quilt movement and bring the beauty of quilting to the outside of your home. Or give one to someone you know. Barn quilts make great gifts.
