Rail Fence Xmas Fabs

I did my strips so I would have a 9" finished square making an 18" finished block. The green +'s (pluses) are the same fabric....same blocks, making the red +'s 4 different fabrics from other blocks. The light fabric is ecru with green holly leaves.

Nice quilt, I have a box full of strips, think I may try one of these to use them up.

Thanks, Beverly. It uses up those extra strips as you can use different fabrics for each block. Since someone said you could "eyeball" from corner to corner, I've been sewing a grid through the blocks. Someday, I want to learn to meander......2007 goal.

I'm putting away my Christmas fabric now........ @:)

Ok, you learn to meander, I'm gonna learn to handquilt. If that doesn't work out, I'll learn to meander too.

Beverly, I used to handquilt....which I really enjoyed, but my hands and fingers can't do it anymore for any length of time.

I found a meandering pattern online that I printed off and hopefully I can get DH to enlarge it so I can practice. Thought I'd just get a yard of cloth, sandwich it and go for it!

BTW....I finally got your fleece squares in the mail today so be on the look-out for them.

Thank you so much for the squares. I don't know if my hands and shoulders will hold up for long either but I have always wanted to try, so I will give it a shot.

Thanks, Fran. I needed to get one done before Christmas and I was also trying to use up the Christmas fabric I've had for awhile. This seemed to fit the bill....

Hey Sharon, I really like that!!

When I first looked at it, I thought of one of those puzzles where you follow a path to the center, and if you go the wrong way, you run into a wall and have to turn around to find an open one...just a thought.

You did good.

Let us know how the meandering goes.
