Rail Fence

I thought I would post the pictures of the cover quilt and few other versions of Rail Fence block. For the cover quilt I chose to experiment with different color combinations. As you can see there is no rhyme or reason for these colors to be together but are harmonious because of the value and contrast.

Quilt made by LeeAnn of Nifty Quilts. She used the same blocks and made the Hopscotch quilt. She also made the piano keys borders using the Rail Fence blocks.

When you look at close up of these blocks, you can see all the whimsical variations.

Whirly Gig in progress

The possibilities are so much fun.. I always want to make another one and see what those slight curves work into a new quilt.

Have you tried making a quilt with these blocks yet? I know you wouldn't want to stop at just one!

Experiment - Try something new, it may surprise you.


  1. I love it all...the whimsey, the color..the designs...I ordered the book today..had to get special sheets for my husband's hospital bed and only could get free shipping if I ordered your

  2. I have a stack of "purple" fabrics ready and my book should be here any day now!

  3. I love the explosion of colour in these quilts, especially Whirligig and Bricks.


Thank you for taking the time to read and respond.
