    scrappy fence rail

    Here's another one I finished this weekend. It's just the raw top and still needs borders, but wanted to share anyway. This quilt was made completely out of the leftover scraps from the Sister Star quilt I posted earlier. It's about 60x72 (or will be when I get the borders on). I'm thinking about giving it to my sister's daughter since both quilts are made from all the same fabrics.

                    Re: scrappy fence rail

                    No, I'm not really all that productive. I sort of worked on both quilts simultaneously. As I would accumulate leftover strips I would sew them together and cut the blocks so it just sort of worked out that they both came together at the same time. And the fence rail went together so quickly. Besides, I leave the housework to the two kids still at home in college, so I have more time to play on the sewing machine.

                        Love the quilt top! Good job!

                          I really like the idea of doing your scraps as you work on another quilt. Need to try that one.
                          Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                          it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                            I agree with Sandy, I will start working with my scraps as I make a quilt, 2 at once is even better!
