Farm 2 Market......

As I may have mentioned, we (well, me, really) couldn't get going with our Tri-County Quilt Tour project until just a few weeks ago.  I had designed the block ~ a barn.....but every idea I came up with for a project just kind of landed with a *thud* when I tried it out in my head or on paper.  The staff tried to be kind, but I could tell it went over just about as well with them as it did with me!  Then, one afternoon when Jan and I were working, I looked over at the Kaffe Fassett fabric and asked her what she thought about *blowing the barn up* to 14" and making it out of a red Kaffe fabric?  And what if we used that stripe with the flowers on it as a fence line and that fabric with the wild circle motifs as trees, and.....well, we had a winner we thought.  I'll let all of you be the judge, but we kind of felt it would be like having Kaffe paint our barn, do our landscaping and hang some of his clothes out on the line  =)

I wish I could say I was 100% ready for 9:00 Thursday morning, but I really am not.  I'm sure Jan and I can whip the last few things into shape by then, though.  Tomorrow, we'll put a few kits together and spruce the place up and move a few more things around.  I'll try to make time tomorrow evening to show you our other project made with the barn block ~ the *correct* 9" sized one.  Until then.....
