Quilting on a Larger Scale

Scott Hagan may not think of himself as a quilter, but he knows quite a bit about how quilt blocks and patterns go together. A painter by trade, he sometimes works with quilt blocks on a very large scale, transferring traditional quilt block patterns to his chosen canvas, and painting in the patchwork pieces. And the canvas? Old wood barns! These quilt blocks can be 20 feet tall! To see Scott’s unusually large quilt blocks, check out his website. You’ll see his work on the Monroe County, Ohio Quilt Square Project, and some of his more recent projects such as the John Deere Barn and the Belmont County Bicentennial Barn. Better yet, visit the area in person to see these works of art!
