Railfence Baby Quilt
InstructionsUse 2" strips of 8 different fabrics, with different color values. Join 4 fabrics to make two sets of 6-1/2" wide strips. Cut into squares. Alternate the two sets horizontal and vertical to get a stairstep pattern across the quilt. Add border, binding- done!

What was your inspiration?
I found these beautiful rocket and robot fabrics, and they were irresistible
What are you most proud of?
How the colors blended, and the embroidered quilting
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Lay out your fabric, folded and shifted by 2" so you get a feel for how the colors blend. Be sure to choose fabrics of different values, or the railfence effect will be lost.
A design wall helps a lot - I would have certainly made (more) errors in joining the squares otherwise!
