Welcome to Block 5 of the Barn Quilt BOM Quilt Along! I am making the mini quilts using the Barn Quilt Pattern by Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting.
This has been a difficult week. I received a new iPhone that has the telephoto and close-up lenses. That's the good news. The bad news is that when I took photos of the intermediate stages of Block 5, I did not know that my new camera was using a photo file that is incompatible with my website platform.
This was not immediately obvious. It took a couple of days to figure out why I could not upload the photos to my blog. I finally figured out the problem and changed the settings in my iPhone to a compatible file type. However, I could not replicate the photos that I took as I constructed the block, and I could not change the photos to a compatible file. (I did make a valiant effort.) All I could do was to retake the photos of the finished block.
Therefore, you will not see my usual construction photos. I only have my completed block photos. Fortunately, Sherry has provided excellent directions!
You may notice that I used two different fabrics for Fabric J. I did this because I am using fat quarters for the Barn BOM mini quilts, and I needed more than one fat quarter for Fabric J. Before I leave the mini quilt top with Block 5, here is one more photo.
