Smaller Scale Rail Fence Block

The quilt top from yesterday's post is finished, and now I'm doing the same block with 2.5" strips, rather than 3" strips. Using two dark strips and two light strips, I have enough units to make 4 blocks (above). This one will have some oddball fabric combinations. No "spreading" of blocks in this top. I'll keep you posted.

I love zig-zag quilts. I've done one recently (it turned out pretty ugly) but am working on a Christmas one that I"m eager to get to the 'look at' stage. I loved the way the blocks spilled over in the previous quilt.

You know Karen, I love this block. The rose fabrics blend in so well. I have a few rosey fabrics so I'm going to make a zigzag quilt with them. I love the way you switched directions. It's gorgeous.
