Barn Quilt Blocks

Thank you to mentor, April, for submitting this idea!

Supplies Needed:

A square piece of wood (recommended: 10″x 10″)

  • A yardstick or ruler
  • Masking or Painter’s tape
  • Pencil
  • Assorted Paint Markers or Acrylic Paints
  • Spray varnish sealer or Mod Podge brush on sealant


  1. Choose your pattern (templates here), and draw it onto your piece of wood, using a yardstick or ruler & pencil to ensure your lines are straight.
  2. Tape off the area(s) that your 1st color will be in to keep paint from bleeding into other parts of your block; color/paint in these sections.
  3. Let paint dry, and then repeat taping and painting steps for the remainder of your design.
  4. Once finished and all paint has dried, coat entire piece with sealant.


Once the sealant has dried, you are ready to hang your new Barn Quilt block!
