There Are No Cut Corners Here
In the days of fake news, it seems everything is mass produced and 'Made in China.' People are searching for what is real and truly authentic. We handcraft each barn quilt one-at-a-time to create a one-of-a-kind design for you. Using quality materials and time, we hand draw each pattern and painstakingly paint each piece. Yes, it is old school and often tedious. We aim for clean, crisp lines and sharp edges. This allows the handcrafted authenticity of our barn quilts to shine through. From the brush strokes that become almost a part of the pattern to the date and signature on the back, you will have a real and authentic barn quilt to display on your homestead.
We start with high quality MDO (Medium Density Overlay) also known as sign board. (More information is available at www.roseburg.com/ProductGroup/duragard-mdo.) Each quilt is then primed and painted with quality exterior satin paint. A layout of the pattern of your choice is hand drawn on the primed surface. Then it is painted with satin exterior paint. We do not use stencils or spray paint. If you choose a framed barn quilt, cedar is primed, painted and attached with stainless steel screws. The whole shebang is then finished with three coats of satin spar urethane for moisture and UV protection. If you opt for a frameless quilt, the edges are painted and urethaned in the same fashion as the front and back sides of the quilt. The final result is a durable piece of American art that you will enjoy for many moons to come.
