After holding two “sold-out” barn-quilt painting workshops with nationally-known expert Suzi Parron in 2018, the Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce that a local artist has now begun offering barn quilt painting workshops as well. “Barn Quilt Painting by Beverly” hosts barn quilt painting workshops that have all been “sold-out” too.  Bev Lang gives instructions how to paint popular barn quilt designs. The workshops include a pre-primed 2’ x 2’ exterior grade board as well as the paints and foam brushes required to complete a barn quilt during the workshop. Step-by-step instructions will be given on how to draft, tape and paint the barn quilt square. Attendees are asked to bring a yardstick, a pencil, eraser, cutter, a blow dryer and painter’s tape. The yellow or green “Frog tape” brand works best, but blue Scotch brand is also acceptable. You will leave with a finished quilt block. Pre-registration and payment is required in advance.

For the upcoming class schedule, contact Bev Lang, 1401 Fairway Drive, cell: 567-245-5549, email: blang1@woh.rr.com. In addition, Bev paints custom squares for people who do not wish to paint their own.

Patricia Brady of Brady’s Delicate Creations Barn Quilting will be hosting a booth at the 2020 Fostoria Farmers Markets to sell barn quilt squares as well as to take orders for custom barn quilt squares. Her contact info: PBrady2@woh.rr.com at 111 N US 23 in Fostoria. You may reach her at 419-939-3111.

Workshop attendees and barn quilt purchasers are encouraged to place their barn quilt squares on the local “trail”.  The ladies will provide a Fostoria Ohio Barn Quilt Trail Release Form that will be used by the Fostoria Area Visitors Bureau to promote the locations of barn quilt squares in the area.
