The County Star Barn Quilt

My family and I love to visit the Oregon Coast and called Manzanita home for a too-short six months. I love seeing the barn quilts throughout Tillamook County and all over the countryside from west to east coasts. I wanted to create my own barn quilt pattern using a large scale paper pieced block with a layout that appears to shimmer from the quilt.

The County Star Barn Quilt is a foundation paper pieced pattern in the Farmland Series made with a set of templates that are repeated in different colors to make the unique starry layout.
