Cedar County Extension will host the next workshop for painted barn quilts from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. June 29, at the First Christian Church in El Dorado Springs, 300 S. Main.

Participants need to bring their desired size of signboard or plywood, a half-inch thick, with two coats of primer. They also should bring three or four small containers to take home the paint necessary to complete the quilt, as not every participant will be able to complete the project during the workshop due to paint-drying time. Pencils, brushes, paint and tape will all be provided.

Barn quilts are not just for barns. Smaller barn quilts such as a 2-by-2 foot may be placed on the outside of homes or garages, businesses or churches. Use a variety of similar pattern on 12-by-12 inch boards (available in most craft sections) to create a unique primitive wall gallery in an interior wall in your home. The possibilities are endless for this distinctive piece of art
