Design Wall Monday

Since finishing Indigo Stars (picture to follow), I looked around my sewing room to see what other areas needed work.  I had a half a shelf full of flannel trimmings.  I like to use flannel on the back of baby and kids' quilts, but always have a few inches left over.  I saw a picture of a nice 
scrappy rail fence quilt, and thought this might work for the flannels.  
I began by cutting 2 1/2 inch strips, then into sets of four pieces 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch rectangles.  After cutting for a couple of hours, I began matching darker and lighter rectangles, then stitching them into blocks.
This is the first quilt centre, waiting to be stitched, and I have enough leftover blocks to make two more!


  1. Great way to use up your scraps. This is so cheery and cosy. I just may have to do this with my leftover strips. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Isn't is wonderful when you can use scraps and make something so lovely?


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
