I, not having a barn & not living near any (that I know of) have NEVER seen this, but I think it's amazing. What a fun idea! I love that pattern, but I need a little help here. Does anyone know the specific name for that pattern? I know it's used in quilts all the time. I love how it's triangular, but the triangles together resemble what I can only describe as a sort of moravian star, which I pulled from the only other non-quilt related time I've seen this pattern. In origami, we have these moravian stars:

Which are pretty darn close to their non 3-D buddy on the barn there. So anyway, I immediately thought, I've GOT to do a giant wall installation of this pattern, how cool would that be?! I've been mega in love with triangle pattern walls like this one:
After googling an assortment of words to see if anyone has done similar with quilt patterns on their walls, the closest I came to was this next one:

- Draw the triangle pattern & freehand the paint. Problem? Wiggly freehand lines...may be a neat effect though.
- Draw the pattern and tape each triangle one by one. Could take forever? Definitely will get the clean lines.
- Find a triangle stencil, though I imagine it would have gaps... could be ok?
- Wall Decals, would have to buy lots!
- Giant Triangle Stamp? I don't even know where to start there.. foam?
Anyway, I'm clearly obsessed with getting this thing done someday. I'm diggin' the Aunt Eliza's Star pattern and think it's high time her star joined the ranks of fabric inspired wall treatments. I can see it now, giant barn quilts as headboards...How about you, can you see this in your house? Even a subtle design of two similar colors would add some fun detail to a wall. Like grey & white. Or, is the look ridiculous & I should drink less coffee & just move on......? My caffeinated heart says go for it...
Hey tomorrow is Friday, finally! I like that.
Is the way people spell "grey" (or "gray") a preference like the tomato/tomato debate?
