Grandpa's Barn Quilted Wall Hanging in Lauren!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Today I'm sharing a Grandpa's Barn quilt in the Baby size, but I'll call it the Wall Hanging size since it's not made with fabrics suited for a baby!

I recently finished a batch of small quilts to be displayed in my local quilt shop, Tangled Threads.  This is one of the quilts.

Those Pretty Fabrics!

My Grandpa's Barn quilt pattern was selected to highlight a really pretty fabric collection called Lauren.  The collection includes mauves, greens, browns, and tans in florals, paisleys, and tone-on-tones.  The Lauren jelly roll is available right here.  The background fabric is an ivory tone-on-tone from my stash.

The Grandpa's Barn Quilt Pattern

Grandpa's Barn includes some great features:
  • Precut friendly - jelly roll strips welcome!
  • All the sizes - 5 in all - Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.
  • Strip piecing
  • Lots of diagrams and text so it's very understandable

Longarm Quilting

This Grandpa's Barn quilt was quilted with Feathered Roses, a digital design, on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher in tan thread. The quilting is a bit darker than the background fabric so it really stands out across the quilt top.
