Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville has a super fun idea going on for her "leaders and enders" project for this year. It is the rail fence quilt! I have made several, using up strings and scraps. Above it the same kinds of thing, but with the center strips a color, and lots of neutrals for the other strips. I think another name of this may be Basket Weave strings, yes??
Here is a string rail fence quilt I made and hand quilted. It is a super heavy quilt, because I pieced the strings on muslin!
A little closer view. All the strings are just that...strings. None cut to a specific width.
Rosie is now modeling for you, for you to get the full effect of this quilt. She says she likes this one!!
I have made several rail fence quilts and given them away to patients...so here goes one more, as it is a fun and fast pattern!!
