The “twist” part is in the definition of ‘wall’. Today’s version is not what’s on it but that it is the wall! To be clearer, it’s wood with a quilt block as the design. For those who are familiar with the term “Barn Quilt”, this is not a new term but, for those not acquainted, let me explain. “Barn Quilts” are square (usually) pieces of exterior (again, usually) appropriate material (wood, metal, composite) that is painted (using exterior appropriate paints) in a quilt block design and hung so as to be viewed by a passer-by. It may be on a house, garage, barn or, in this case, a shed.
has been changed to this….
and it’s just begging for some ‘sprucing up’!! So, here’s the “blank canvas” area just waiting…………. for a little attention! The drying lines are on the back and the area to the right of the “wind screen” (a must down here!) will be perfect (I think….. unless we swap the two…LOL!)
The idea I’m working on is a “Mariner’s Compass” quilt block and had this humble beginning…. The colors/paints used will be the same as the window/flower box……… First, paint the board and transfer the design………..
Next, tape and paint………….. Believe it or not…..this is the lighter red that’s on the window-box! Wait a bit (few hours), 2nd paint coat and remove the tape………….. Now, you are able to get a better idea of where this is going. The darker burgundy will be next (later today) and the 2-tones of green will finish the secondary points. Stay tuned………….
