Readers Project: Barbara’s Rail Fence Quilt

Note from Alanda Craft: Barbara has completed some more awesome quilts. She is churning them out like there is no tomorrow. I love how your confidence has grown since you first started out Barbara. I was going to put them all up together but I think each needs to be given its moment. This is Barbara’s rail fence quilt.  You  sure do have a real knack for choosing colours.

Barbara Says::
This one is for a friend from high school.  She likes bright colors.

NOTE: If you can’t find the Meadowbloom Jelly Roll by Moda, there are lots of other lovely jelly rolls available at Amazon.

Rail Fence Quilt with the borders added:

I finished it this morning and took it to the shop.  It ended up being a lot bigger than I thought it would be. Maybe I should have skipped the borders but to me, they really finish the look.

  • And here is the completed quilt. I think the combination of the quilting,  the backing and the binding makes this quilt pop.
