Well the two rail fence quilts are both finished. HOORAY!! We have two weddings in August so these are the intended gifts. Typically I make something a little fancier but this time around I don’t have time and these are both just fine…nice in fact.
I was inspired to whip these up after reading Crazy Mom’s Scrap Basket Quilt Along and from a box of fabric from one of my blog readers. The box had lots of red, white and black fabric. I added some of my own fabrics with those and in no time I had enough for a quilt. It was one of those times when I just started cutting not knowing how many strips I had. I was pleasantly surprised when I found I had enough for two quilts…perfect. I had two weddings.
The only real difference between the two quilts is one has a stripped backing and the other a polka dot backing.
I actually have about 10 blocks left over so I am very tempted to cut a few more strips and and sew a few more blocks. We have another wedding in September and I’d easily have that wedding covered too.
The pattern is so simple and easy. I made the two quilt tops in a long weekend and didn’t even sew the entire time.
Sad to say, Ruby is still sleeping this morning so no picture of her on a quilt is going to make it into this blog post…
