Barn Quilt Block Theme for December

Have you seen large painted quilt block designs on barns? I spot them more often than in past years. And they are delightful to view! What quilt block would you choose to paint if you had a barn to use as a canvas?

This month’s Quilt Block Mania designers’ theme is Barn Blocks. While each designer can interpret the theme differently, I chose to redesign the Lucky Clover quilt block. I thought if I had animals they might like to eat sweet clover. And lucky clover would perhaps keep my livestock happier and healthier.

I thought the vintage Lucky Clover Block I found in Jinny Beyer’s book (The Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns) was very nice, with the curves and two tones of green, but I wanted to design a straight-line pattern for sewing.

Here is my redesigned block, which is free to download for the month of December 2022. Click here to go to my Payhip site and get your block.

  1. this is great. thanks for sharing. i love your comment about keeping your livestock happy and healthy. when I grew up on a farm in CA eons ago, there was an irish family that had a four leaf clover painted on his barn and his house and his chicken coop. then being young I just thought it was a really cool thing to do. this man loved four leaf clovers. since than I learned why he did it. and I have to say he had the healthiest livestock around. was it due to the four leaf clovers or he was just great at keeping his livestock happy and healthy? either way, it is pretty and fun to have on the farm.

  2. What a wonderful memory this is. I am sure there were many factors in this Irish farmer having healthy and happy livestock, including the four leaf clovers.
