Design Wall Monday

The rail fence blocks are back on the design wall today. The number of blocks has grown from 9 to 16. I really how the same fabric functions as the  light rail in one block, and becomes a dark rail in another block. Every fabrics' value is relative to the fabric that it's placed beside. Look at the three blocks with the gold fabric... it looks so different in each block. 
I'll be sewing more rail blocks this week until I either run out of these old fabric strips, or I get tired of this technique. It could be a while!

    Are you familiar with the old power company figure "Ready Kilowatt"? That is what comes to mind when I see this quilt.

  6. Sew on, Kathy! You are having fun with these blocks. Funny name for a power Company @ Janet O! Maybe a possible name for your Quilt, huh?

  7. Glad you are having fun with this - it is looking great. I too love the way the value of any fabric seems to change from block to block.

  8. Love your fabrics together, very striking! I'm doing this one too, but having trouble coming up with fabric combos, and I'm working from my stash. It would be much easier to just go and pick out fabric at the store...
