Hello quilty friends! Back again with block 18, which features one of my very favorite things – barns!


I really love barns. We’ve got the farm, but sadly, we don’t have a barn. Maybe someday, though! For now, I’ll just have to dream. The barn of my dreams is complete with an old-timey rooster weather vane, a big-old field full of corn (we’ve got the field, now if we could just get it planted), and of course, a barn quilt!

    I love all the blocks but this is the icing on the cake.

    I’ve been collecting your patterns but haven’t yet begun stitching them. Have a BIG question … when does one use backstitch and when outline stitch? Are there reasons for using 1 or the other? I’m not a fan of backstitch as can’t seem to get as nice a straight line when I use it. Also, assume the same number of threads used for each?
