RAIL FENCE

Rail Rences turn out so nice and are so fun and easy. I got the idea from one of the blogs I visit. Now for me to tell you which one is another story, so I apologize for not giving credit where credit is due.



I have had this back material for ever, got it at a garage sell and I think it is a sheet. I just love it. Unfortunately, my camera seems to be washing out the colors on my quilts (probably operators error).

A few ladies came over today. One just finished the handle on a bag (she had to run). Another made a quilt top for one of her gransons to be (still baking in the oven), infact she is having twins....so one more quilt is due. I had the material already cut out for the quilt, it is a checker board quilt...easy....great for a first time quilter. when she finishes the next one, I will take pictures of both. Then another gal made 3 one hour totes and two cosmetic bags. What a very busy day. Sorry, didn't think to take pictures today.

The stippling of the quilt above was done after a they left and a nap.....sheweeeee was so tired.

your group today sounds like our "Lakeside Ladies" and I do so enjoy being part of that. Besides the quilting I enjoy the company of 5 other Ladies and its nice the friendships we have formed.

I've used that great pattern often when teaching a beginner quilter. Very pretty.

LOVE that quilt and your stippling is so pretty on it. Did I understand you to say you have the fabric cut OUT for those gals to use when they come to your house to quilt?? Heck......maybe you want to cut out the fabric for MY quilts!!! LOL

Barb, thanks for sharing your cute Rail Fence quilt. I am busy working on one...I did not follow a pattern and used 3 strips. I like the 4 strips in your quilt.
