Rail Fence Finish #11

 Can you believe that there are still some Rail Fence quilts to be completed?

For this quilt, I just alternated the direction of the blocks. 


I still had quite a few blocks left and this layout requires the most blocks - 168 to be exact.

These patchwork quilts really are inviting when completed.  I thought about adding a border on one of these but I am pretty much out of brown fabric in my stash! Yay!
(And I need to keep in mind I need backings for future quilts.)

I was able to use two large cuts for the backing - both were donated by a friend.  For the quilting, I went with a simple meander in a brown thread.

I still have more blocks to sew together.  How many more do you think I will be able to complete?

Hmmm, I'm going to guess 3 more quilts. I'm certainly impressed by them all and how much work you have put into this!

I can’t believe how cohesive all the blocks from different people are playing so nicely together in these beautiful quilts. They have all turned out so beautifully. You are doing such a wonderful thing to start this initiative in your local community.

These quilts have really turned out to be fantastic! I have to say - I am (im)patiently waiting for the next block drive!
