Quilt Festival is over and I'm sad I didn't win any prizes. But I did get around to a number of sites and saw some fantastic quilts. I also found some wonderful new-to-me blogs. Thank-you to all my visitors and welcome to my new followers and subscribers.
Now, however, is it time to move on to the Gratitude Quilt Along for that quilt design. This Wednesday I will be launching the Quilt Along. This will be a 6 week event, from fabric choice to finishing. Of course there is no obligation to finish it in that time frame, but I'll be sewing right along with you and working my hardest to finish in those six weeks as well. If all goes well I am going to incorporate some video along the way, in addition to detailed pictures and instructions.
This quilt is a modern design, but it is based on a very traditional quilt - the Rail Fence. Unlike a traditional Rail Fence this quilt uses more fabrics, the strips are uneven sizes, and the blocks are cut on an angle. It is a very easy quilt to put together but, as you can see, gives you a very bold design. Fabric choice is really important so our first on-line class will focus on the fabric selection.
We'll see you on Wednesday!
