Red Rails

This is the second "Red Rails" quilt I've made. It's a quick way to use up a lot of scraps. The units are made of 1.5 x 3.5 bricks.  This measures 60 x 72.  It will be donated, but I don't yet know to whom or when.

I busted 8-1/2 yards of stash!
I pieced leftover blocks into the back.

Love it ! The red strips really tie everything together and give it a very modern look. What a cheerful quilt !

I agree, the consistancy of the red centre stripe really makes the difference. And as I'm a lover of red and scraps this has GOT to be on my 'to make' list. Thanks for the inspiration - FABULOUS :)
