The Quilt Blocks on my Ceiling

A while back I showed you what I had been working on for a long time.  I called it my big fat project.  Today I am going to show you each individual block I painted.  Believe me, I enjoyed doing this so much and was kind of sad when I was finished.  When we started, I thought I was going to have to paint sixty some quilt blocks.  I didn’t have to paint nearly that many although I did end up painting one hundred and fifty blocks including the all white ones.

So here are the blocks.

I’m going to have to look this one up as I forget its name at the moment..

That’s about all of them.  This was such a fun project.  This Spring I am going to paint a barn quilt for the front of our house.  Maybe I will just cover our house in quilt blocks.  Wouldn’t that make an interesting tourist attraction for Columbus?  The Quilted House.  I like the sound of that.  Wonder if the city fathers would frown upon it?   Have a great day. Bye.
