Our Barn Quilt

Last week we started making barn quilts for our schools auction. Ours is an eight point star and we are painting it blue, white, red, and silver.

First you need to get a four foot by four foot sheet of plywood, we sanded the edges, and then primed it. When the primer is dry paint a two inch black box around the outside. Now you have to tape out the design you choose and then paint it.When the paint is dry peel the tape off and and when the whole thing is painted your done

. We had to come up with a new name so we named it the navigator star. This is ours and what it looks like when it is finished.
