Modern Barn Quilt Paint Along Prep

I'm so excited about the Modern Barn Quilt Paint Along that I'm hosting. We'll start next week, and I'll have daily postings with step by step instructions and lots of photos to help you throughout each step of the process. I can't wait to see what you all come up with, and hopefully we'll have lots of modern barn quilts popping up all over. If you'd rather paint a traditional barn quilt, that's fine too! Anything goes in the Modern Barn Quilt Paint Along!

If you'd like to start gathering your supplies this weekend, here's what you'll need.

* plywood cut to the size you'd like your finished sign to be (mine is 2' x 2' )
* primer
* assorted acrylic paints
* assorted brushes
* pencil
* ruler
* blue painter's tape
* exacto knife
* waterproof sealer (if you're sign will be hung outside)
* hairdryer (optional)
* your choice of hanging device (I used d-rings and screws)

For my sign I used 1/4'' pine plywood, that is pre-cut to 24'' x 24''. I bought mine from Home Depot for less than $6. Look for it in the Lumber aisle.

John had a great idea about using stretched canvas if you'd prefer to hang your barn quilt inside rather than out. I think they would look great in a sewing room or studio, and I think I may have to make a version like that, too! You can find primed, stretched painting canvases at any craft or art supply store. If you choose that method instead of the plywood, you'll skip the priming step of the tutorial.

Please let me know if you have any questions about your supplies or the paint along, either by leaving a comment below or by emailing me at olive_and_ollie at yahoo dot com. I'll set up a flickr page for us so we can share our barn quilts, and I'm working on a button so we can spread the word, too!

Oh! I love the canvas idea for inside. I have a couple of those sitting around, I'll have to try that.

It may be mid-week before I can go get my plywood but I'll catch up within a few days!

This will be fun! :)
