Barn Quilt Workshop

Suzi Parron, author of several books about the barn quilt movement, will do a hands-on barn quilt workshop in the morning on Saturday, August 26 from 9:00AM-1:00PM at the Marshalltown Public Library. The cost is $40 to participants and covers all supplies. Sign up at the Check-Out Desk.

Join the barn quilt movement by creating your own painted quilt block. You will begin with a pre-primed board and go through each step—drafting, taping, and painting, with careful attention to detail. The workshop lasts about 4 hours. You will leave with a finished quilt block or with one last color (which will be provided) to add at home. The finished product will be two-by-two feet and is the perfect size for mounting on smaller buildings.

A presentation about the barn quilt movement will follow at 2:00 p.m. The presentation is sponsored by the library and is free to the community.

For more information, please call the library’s Information Desk at 641-754-5738 ext. 4.
