Mini Barn Quilts Country Living2

Have you seen these adorable Mini-Barn Quilt Kits yet?  My good friend Terri, from Childlike Fascination came up with this genius idea and has produced these wonderful little kits where you can use your favorite fabrics, add a little modge podge, and you get the cutest results! Her idea is so brilliant, that it will be appearing in Country Living’s General Store section.  How cool is that?  She will be releasing 10 new blocks in 2016!

Here’s Terri’s quick video tutorial to show you how to make your own mini-barn block. There are lots of great tips on her website for putting one together. With a little modge podge and fabric, it’s so easy!

They make the best little gifts (to myself).  Terri currently has six designs to choose from in her shop. I admit, I bought four.  But they are so cute, and so affordable, at $17,  I couldn’t help myself.  They will be the perfect way to use up my tiny scraps from all my favorite fabrics. And they are so easy to make, I can do it with my kids.

I love Terri Ann’s ingenuity and determination to create this DIY artwork for all of us to enjoy. Terri Ann is a busy woman, with a full-time job in the tech world. Like so many of us, she has to squeeze in time to be creative.

I am amazed and proud of what she has accomplished; she and I have spent a lot of time talking about how tough it is – dreaming up the adorable, fun product with mass appeal is just a tiny piece of the uphill battle required to bring your dream to life. But she has proven that it’s possible. We can all do it. All you need is a glimmer of entrepreneurial spirit, and a lot of determination. And the American dream is yours.

Do you have an ingenius tutorial or tip to share with us today?  I hope so!

    These are really cute. My mother in law is part of a group in her hometown that is decorating the older buildings with barn quilts. Love this mini version!

    Yes, I’ve seen the barn quilts. Can’t remember where…perhaps a magazine? Anyway, they are so cute and nicely priced. Great idea to feature them for her!
