Back by popular demand, Cedar County MU Extension will host the next workshop for painted barn quilts on August 29th, 2020. The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the El Dorado Springs High School (901 South Grand Ave). Barn quilts can be displayed in numerous places. Larger barn quilts (such as a 2’ x 2’) may be placed on the outside of homes or garages, businesses or churches. Use a variety of similar patterns on 12” x 12” boards (which can be found in most craft sections), as they can be used to create unique primitive wall galleries on an interior wall of your home. The possibilities are endless.
Participants will need to bring their desired size of signboard (MDO) or pre-treated plywood, 1/2 in. thick, up to 4’ x 4’ maximum, with two coats of primer. Your board should be square. Due to paint drying time, we ask that you bring 3 to 4 small containers that will enable you to take home any paint necessary to complete your quilt if you do not finish in time. An extension cord and hair dryer may aid in shorter drying times. Instruction, pencils, brushes, paint and tape will all be provided.
The cost to attend this workshop is $30 per person. There is a maximum of 15 participants, so register early. Deadline to register is Aug. 28. To register online go to:
