Quilt blocks aren't always sewn with fabric. Sometimes they are painted on wood panels to create "barn quilts," which are large-scale designs often seen on vintage barns or in home decor. Join expert quilter and multi-crafter Nancy Scott in this episode of Creative Living to learn how to paint a single quilt block focal point for any room of your house or to display outdoors.

In this episode, you'll learn how to:
  • Select a wood panel.
  • Match paint to project design.
  • Graph and transfer the quilt block outline onto your panel.
  • Paint the quilt block design.
Materials:
  • Wood board, Get high grade plywood that is smooth on one side. The sample piece is an 18" x 18" board. A 24" x 24" board would work well on a patio or a garage. The larger your building, the larger the board should be.
  • Paint. If your wall quilt will be displayed inside, standard household wall paint will work well.
  • If your wall quilt will be displayed on a barn or outside in the elements, it is essential to use an exterior or marinegrade paint, plus a topcoat.
  • Brushes or rollers. Sizes will vary with the size of board and amount of detail in your block.
  • Painterís canvas to cover your work area
  • Graph paper
  • Painterís tape
