Design Wall Monday - QPOM

I was happy to see my quilty friends at guild meeting this past week and we enjoyed a wonderful presentation by Jackie Syer (no website that I know of). I signed up for the new QPOM (Quilt Pattern of the Month) program, where we get a new scrappy quilt pattern each month. 
Got scraps? We are getting ideas!
So when I was at Gail's house this weekend, I started cutting 1.5" strips for my new QPOM project called "Not Just Any Rail Fence".
I am sewing these blocks on my 301 (gifted to me by Liz) to give it a good workout.





On my design wall today are the blocks I have sewn so far. I have already finished about a quarter of the blocks - 16 of the 63 needed.
I think I need to add in more red and gold and brown. What would you add?

Hop over to Patchwork Times to see more design walls.

  2. Cute pattern for a stash/scrap buster - you are going to get lots of answers which just means 'don't be afraid of color'!

  4. Yes, more bright colors added to this will make it shine. I like the idea of a Block pattern of the month that uses scraps! Great idea!

  7. I really like this pattern. Very fun twist on the rail fence. I like the idea of more gold/cheddar--maybe a little more red, but I must ask--where is the purple?

  10. I like this pattern. Add any color you want. Remember it is suppose to be scrap so the more color the merrier.
