Quilt #5: Barn Raising by Sweetwater

I can’t remember now how I ran across Feed Company by Sweetwater Fabrics but when I did, I knew I needed some! With text prints of feed stores, recipes, and little red trucks, I knew it would be cute for my parents.

I used the Barn Raising pattern for the quilt.5and6-11
