I've always wanted a giant barn with a giant quilt block painted on it. (In my dream world, the barn is my studio, and it's filled with gleaming hardwood floors, lots of cabinets and amazing light coming in through the many windows. Yes, my dream barn has windows). We don't have a barn. But my husband does have a tall wood shop. And when we bought the place, he promised me I could paint a big quilt block along either one of the sides of it..or on the back. Well that's all good and dandy, but you wouldn't see it from the road. Quilting customers might still think they are lost (the association has lots of roads..newcomers always feel overwhelmed when driving the neighborhoods).
Then I remembered the shed. That's right..the house came with a shed, one that my husband wanted to move from the front of the house to the back, but he hasn't figured out an easy way to do it...and neither of us want to dismantle it to move it. So the shed stayed put, and I decided that it was the perfect place to put my painted quilt block. It's easily seen from the road so anyone driving by knows that a quilter lives in this house.

I'm so happy with how it turned out. I smile every time I pull into the driveway. And to my husband...Thank You Jeff. The quilt block is exactly what I wanted. You are the best. I love you.
