Rail Fence

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My youngest son and his wife love, love, love this quilt!!! It is modern enough that it appeals to them! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure that your rows don't twist or curve on you. I sewed my material into strips and then cut my squares. Be sure that everything is squared up! This is not a perfect quilt technique-wise but I have only been quilting for 3 years and the only class I have taken is from Craftsy online!

What you will need

  • Quilting cottons

QuiltDude asked:
Really striking color combination - the little bit of red catches your eye. Great job! And if you hadn't said your quilt was not perfect, I would not have been the wiser. Keep up the great work.

Marcie asked:
Really is a beautiful quilt! :-) I hope someday I can make one just as lovely.
ycdunn@shaw.ca answered:
Marcie, this was a challenging project for me in some ways, I am really a virgin quilter, but once I got going on it, I found it to be a good project for beginners. You can do it!!!!!
NCgirl asked:
Very striking quilt! ( I have always wanted to do a rail fence quilt. ) You did a wonderful job with the colors. Keep on quilting!

no1dramma asked:
The quilt is beautiful. Are you sure you have only been quilting for 3 years? Great use of color. Did you quilt it or send it to a longarm quilter?
ycdunn@shaw.ca answered:
You are making me blush, and yes, I have only been quilting for 3 years and I am self taught. I am currently taking the machine quilting course on Craftsy, but I have never taken any other course. I quilted this quilt on my Pfaff machine, I have never used a longarm quilter, but I love the beautiful finishing of the longarm quilting. Someday...... again thank you for the wonderful compliment.
