Welcome to Part 8 of the Barn Stars Sew Along!
The Barn is the best part of the whole quilt! Applique makes the doors pop, the hayloft sparkles with a pinwheel star. And it is simple piecing. Watch the video for tips on pressing, trimming, and assembly.
A few tips:
- The Barn Door panels are cut oversized, be sure to read the instructions, and don’t forget to cut them down after applying the fusible web.
- The sides of the barn are mirror images, again, be sure to look at the diagrams and follow the instructions.
- Remember to place the fabric you are pressing TOWARD facing up. Being consistent helps keep things going as planned.
- Use a blanket stitch or small zig-zag to secure the raw edges of the Barn Door panels to the background.
