Wooden Quilt

A fellow blogger was talking about quilts painted on barns and wood and it reminded me of a piece I was making years ago.
I had decided to paint a quilt, onto a full piece of plywood, and hang it over my entry way.
I did most of the painting and then put it aside and never finished it. I planned on using black to outline and give it the look of a quilt when all finished, but all it got was musty and spills from something and someone. So, it sits in the cellar and I told my husband to throw it out, but he said he can still use the board, for what, I have no idea;)

It does inspire me to do something similar on wood, but in smaller versions.

Nope... you're not throwin' that away! LOL! Too much time and detail! Wait until the warmer months come and set it outside to air out... you might have an idea that will be able to save it! :-)

That is so beautiful!
How about applying a gel stain to age it? That would look fabulous!
So please DO NOT throw it away or destroy it!

Love your painted quilt! You should bring it in the house and finish it. It's never to late to finish a project. (Lord knows I have plenty of unfinished projects...)

If I didn't live 3000 miles away I'd twist your arm to see if you'd let me take it off your hands. Beautiful! You should go into the barn painting business.
