Four-square quilts designs are
fairly simple, but can be very
dynamic depending on the choice
of colors and the arrangement
of the pieces. The same is true
for a nine-square design and the
eight-pointed star. Some people
maywant toworkout their design
andcolors aheadof time.Thebest
way is to use some crayons or
markers to work out the design.
It is important to remember that
these barn quilts are small, so the
“pieces” are only inches and if
theyare tobeseen fromadistance,
really small pieces can’t be seen.
