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.
Very bright bright with black-and-white.
When you go over the top, you should just keep going.
I just love these blocks.
Here's the finished flimsy. The blocks are 16" square, so this quilt will be 42" x 64", a generous lap quilt to keep our friend warm while undergoing chemotherapy.
I kept all the leftover trimmings when I cut the blocks apart, and resewed them into a long, fun strip.
I added our friend's name to the back, and had a lot more fun with fabrics from my stash. It was a quilt made in a week, and it's away being quilted for a quick turnaround. I sure do hope this young lady beats cancer and can enjoy this quilt for a very long time.
