SECOND BARN QUILT WALL HANGING WORKSHOP
OFFERED SEPTEMBER 21

Create your own barn quilt wall hanging at this workshop September 21! Participants will create a rustic barn quilt wall hanging for indoor or outdoor display. West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) will host the workshop, conducted by local artist Tara Hensley, on September 21, 2019, 10:00 a.m. till noon at the West Plains Senior Center, 416 E. Main in West Plains. Cost for the workshop is $30, all supplies included.

The hand-painted wooden décor is a nod towards heirloom quilting. Participants will also learn about the history of barn quilts and barn quilt trails. The quilt block pattern that will be used is the Martha Washington Star. Finished quilt block is 12” x 12”. While the rustic farmhouse version is the most popular, other colors will be available. Once you have mastered your own barn quilt wall hanging, you will be able to make them for gifts or for other areas in your home. You will easily be able to create other quilt block patterns as well.

Tara Hensley was raised in a small town in the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio until about the age of 12. Her upbringing included being a member in the Patchworkers 4-H club, where most of her projects consisted of food, sewing and crafts taught by her mother, a 4-H leader. Hensley won ribbons for her work at local and state fairs, including an award for Outstanding of the Day at the Ohio State Fair. Hensley now lives in West Plains.

“For the most part I have created things for my own home but now have decided to share those things that I create and cherish so much,” says Hensley. “My passion is for what they are calling these days - rustic, primitive and farmhouse. Most of my items have been upcycled from a vintage piece or made from a common household item. This is what inspires me. Of course, I love frequenting vintage re-sale shops and antique stores for my inspirations, so most items that I make are pre-loved and show wear. DIY is a way of life in the Midwest. Thou art blessed who "rescues" unwanted items; her husband may be embarrassed but her projects are incredible!”
