Stars and Rails

After I finished quilting "Scrappy Triangles" (see previous post), I put a bunch of red-and-blue rail fence blocks up on the design wall. I remembered a pattern in the December, 2009, issue of Quilter's World that used rail fence blocks and stars. Those blocks were 4.5" and mine were 6.5". As a result, my quilt is 92" compared to the QW version, which is 68".


  1. This is a beautiful quilt, Nann! I love the straight-up strings. Hope you had a lovely Christmas. :)
    Take care, Dianne B. in England

  2. It's really pretty Nann, I love rail fence blocks and am planning on another one myself soon. I just finished a 2 rail fence from leftover strips from another project that I love.


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
