2014-21 Autumn Rail Fence

Autumn Rail Fence

This project began when I decided to use up the leftover strips from my Autumn Prairie Braid quilt (2011-51).  I don’t like to throw out left-overs so they sit around taking up space and clouding my creativity.  So now as a matter of habit, I try to use up the left-overs without purchasing any new fabrics.    These light and dark blocks were created by joining the leftover of similar value together and setting them out in a rail fence pattern.  It was quilted with a digital design called Maple Sugar from Lorien Quilting.  It makes a great snuggle quilt at the cottage.
