Martha's Larakeet Flower Barn Quilt Story September 16 2014, 0 Comments
Recently, I made this quilt for Martha from Cranford, New Jersey.
It always excites me when new clients are as enthusiastic about barn quilts as I am. When I received Martha's order for this specific design, I asked her what got her interested in barn quilts. She proceeded to tell me about a trip she had just taken where she noticed quilts on barns and homes. She wondered, "what were these beautiful pieces of art? They were not Amish Hex Signs, but we're big, beautiful and full of vivid color! What did they mean?" Unfortunately her tour guides did not know much about the quilts, but after hopping online she found me in no time.
Martha decided on the Larakeet Flower for its vivid colors and beautiful design. She states, "my home is a gray color with blue shutters and this color design will really draw your eye to the quilt." To her belief, she will be the first in her home town of 23,000 to have a barn quilt on her home. This news is just as exciting for me as for Martha! "My hope is that other people will see my beautiful quilt on the front of my home and want one of their own, I would love to see this art form on as many houses in Cranford as possible!"
I'm so happy to be a part of this new found joy in a town far away from mine and hope this beauty can be spread far and wide in the years to come :-)
Thank you Martha, I hope you enjoy your new quilt!
