Barn Quilt Week continues – today we’ll look at the 3rd color added to the barn quilt. For one of them – it means the quilt is done and ready for hanging!
I ran out of frog tape so I had to go to my blue painters tape. I probably should have gone and got more frog tape but it wasn’t in the plans so I went with it. At the place where the points all meet things get slightly tricky.But – it’s an easy fix. I use my handing artists exacto knife and was able to cut the tape to make the points nice.In a perfect world I would use a metal straight edge to help me get my cuts perfect but here I just free handed them and it worked really well too. This final tape job was slightly more tricky as well because the humidity had gone up. the tape just wasn’t sticking as nicely as I would have liked. As I painted I tried to push the tape down to minimize any seeping that might happen…
Four coats later I pulled the tape from the quilt and voila! The Old Windmill Quilt is done! Doesn’t that look sharp!?
I taped out the quilt for the third color on the Farmer’s Daughter. I had the same issue with the humidity here but with the shorter segments the tape stuck better than it did on the Old Windmill Quilt.
The third color on the Farmer’s Daughter is ‘Barnyard Green’. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the tape off after the third color…sorry about that!
Stop by tomorrow to see the ‘Farmer’s Daughter’ Quilt with it’s fourth and final color!
