A little more update on the progress of my blue and white Patchwork Barn quilt.
I have posted the previous progress HERE> and HERE>
From the last post, I have made 12 more blocks and I am happy to say that I only have 9 more blocks to go to complete 72 blocks required for the quilt.

Blue and White Quilt Pattern: Patchwork Barn by Edyta Sitar
The pattern is Patchwork Barn by Edyta Sitar but I may change the layout since I am not really into the barn center of the original quilt design.
Here is how the final quilt will look like if I decide to follow through with the pattern.
Now that I am close to the end of making the blocks, I am thinking maybe the barn is fine, but I may opt out the applique around the barn. I don’t know, we’ll see.
The blocks are 6.5″ unfinished and there are 3 blocks for each block design. The pattern calls for the blocks to be in the same fabrics, but I decided to do each of the three blocks for each design from different fabric combo. Just adding to the scrappy look.
New Quilt Blocks added:
I can’t piece without this small cute rotating mat anymore. Definitely one tool that I must have when I am piecing.
Useful Sewing Notions
These notions have been helping me get more done without having to get up and away from my sewing machine:
- Wool Pressing Mat
- Portable Design Board
- Mini Steam Iron
- Mini Rotating Mat
- Small Squaring Up Ruler
- Small Rotary Cutter
- Clover stiletto
These portable design boards have been super useful letting me prep whenever I have time.
Let’s look at some of my favourite blocks out of these 18 blocks.
Pinwheel Quilt Blocks
The pinwheel blocks was surely fun to make. They just bring a happy vibe…
Basket Quilt Block
I enjoyed hand appliqueing the basket’s handles while making these blocks.
Due to the way the blocks were made, I decided to make the body from the same fabric.
As usual, there will always be time with the seam ripper. OOpsy.
And then there’s this fun suprise I found when piecing one of the log cabin variation block. The mushroom right in the centre! How fun is that.
Well, I have 9 more blocks to go and I am excited to piece them all together after that!
I will surely be updating again soon, hopefully you won’t get bored of this project just yet.
Thanks for stopping by! Have fun Quilting.
