I love Sujata's take on the Rail Fence. I've made it four times. Here's the most recent, a bright quilt for a friend who's undergoing treatment for leukemia. She loves bright colors, and we wanted something to bring a smile to her face.

All the blocks for the Rail Fence were sewn. I used 6" WOF because I had a small pack of them and added to them. I have one extra block. Now I have to decide the positioning. Finished block size is 19". The whole quilt would be 72 x 72 which is a bit big for a comfort lap quilt? I tried a 3 block by 4 block layout, but the scale of the zig zag seems too big to only go three repeats. This is when it would be helpful to have some one else in the room for feedback. Besides the cat. More placement ideas are on my blog,

When I was piecing Midtown Vibe,
I considered mixing up some of the block segments.
I saved these photos for future reference --
and I'm pretty sure this is what Sujata meant
in her comment on my previous post . . .

Busy few days painting this week out at my sister's house, but while we watched paint dry, I thought I'd take a few pics of my retro Rail Fence quilt. The spare room is next on the list for painting, but in the meantime it's the perfect location for a photo shoot of my finished quilt... check out the 1970's wallpaper!

I have had really good feedback over the past day or so
following my post HERE and you can follow up on the background - including
the wonky seams!
the wonky seams!
Sorry the lighting is not good and I had to manoeuvre
around debris in my sewing studio to take the photo.
I could continue on, and some quilters with
Ad Hoc Improv Quilters (see my last post mentioned above
or the button my sidebar on my blog) think I should, some think it's OK as is.
I've decided to leave it just as it is now with a bright binding, but first the quilting!
Then on to the next one!
Well I have started another Cultural Fusion Quilt - my "Winter" is a bit hotter than our Winters in New England, but the hot colors will help keep me warm in the cold winter months....have about 20 units pieced and will keep going till I run out of at least 1 layer cake of the Kaffe Collective fabrics (I have 2) The other pictures are myself and my SO and our puppy Sammy Sam (11 months today/yesterday) he will be one on Halloween....Boo!
