Week 2: Old Red Barn Sew-a-Long

Week 2: Cut Fabric

Strips Have Been Cut

All my 2 1/2" strips have been cut and are piled on my cutting table. Though my iron bit the dust right in the middle of trying to get all the fabric flat and creased nicely for cutting. I had to hunt up an old iron to finish the task ;(

You can still join the us. Go visit Old Red Barn Sew-A-Long for more information. Here is the flickr group for all the sew-a-long too.

I've been reading your comments in the flickr group discussions. I wasn't able to figure out how to email you via flickr, so I thought I'd try this. Has anyone taken you up on your offer to quilt? This is my first quilt and I just took a machine class, but I am very intimidated by the size of this. I grew up near Johnstown, and my in-laws have a farm b/w Johnstown and Somerset. I could possibly bring the quilt along this summer... Just thought I would check on this offer in case no one had taken you up on it yet! Beth

Beth, you are the first person to email on my offer to machine quilt their Old Red Barn quilt :) You can email me at and we can work out the details.

AHHHHH!!!! I'm so excited. I'll email you later this afternoon! Love the work on the wedding quilt with the butler prints - very soothing to the eye! Thanks!!
