Rail Fence 3 Ways - Okay it's really only 2 ways and one scrappy, but we'll get to that in a minute. I was getting ready to teach a few ladies how to quilt and I thought this pattern would be perfect for that, but that plan fell through, especially with Emma home! But I had started getting ready back in October for this. So might as well make them anyway right? I plan on giving them to a local nursing home, so they are a smaller lap size quilt.
The first one is a traditional layout with 3 fabrics creating 2 running strips. Love these colors, so bright and cheerful!
The second one is three fabrics too but with the blocks laid out to form pinwheels. This one didn't look good in the original layout. I guess I picked the wrong color to be in the middle. But it looks good this way.
The final one is a traditional layout with the black on the outside to make a runner. But I cut up all my brown and green scraps to do the other to sets. I alternated the browns and greens on each block. Half the blocks have green on the bottom and half have brown. I meandered on the scraps and straight line quilted on the black.
