Rail Fence Quilts #14 and #15


I made it to the end of the rail fence block drive!  I still have about 30 blocks that I will use at a later date with some leftover fabrics that coordinate beautifully.

Here is quilt #14 - it measures 55 x 65".

At this point, I am running on empty in my brown stash so luckily a friend donated two very alike pieces that I was able to finish off this one.  The binding was made from the trimmings from a previous back - nothing goes to waste!

And finally, quilt #15 -  measuring 50" x 60".

This quilt used up 5 different brown pieces to make its backing.

So there you have it.  We will all enjoy seeing something new here on this blog.  We are already working on the next block drive.  I have started piecing tops and even have one quilted already.

A huge thanks to everyone who helped make these quilts!
