Floral Rail Fence Quilt

Here’s what I was doing instead of cooking for Thanksgiving:

This little rail fence quilt is the same one I made for Felicity Walker’s new ebook, but in a different set of fabrics.

I used two layers of wool batting to make the quilt extra warm. The quilt is stiffer and a bit heavier with the double layer. I’m not sure I would do that again.

I think I’m going to make it one more time in three pale fabrics so there is less zig-zag effect. Any suggestion on colors?

    How about pastel blue, green and yellow?

      Yes, that sounds great, Susan!

    I don’t usually like rail fence quilts but this one is gorgeous. Your fabric choices are beautiful.

      Thank you, Denise! I thought the red might be too bright, but when my daughter who always thinks my color choices are too old-fashioned liked it, I knew I was onto something.
