Leftover Rail Fence progress
I added a blue round for my leftover rail fence quilt. I wanted the blue to look purposeful so I thought I would either make it smaller or larger than the other rails. Since smaller is out - did you see the width of the black strip? - I decided to make it bigger, which only amounts to 2 inch finished.
I still have more rails left, so I figured I would just join them together and keep going around the quilt. This could be the outer border. Maybe make the blue curvy too.
I have a lot more rails left, so I could just keep going around and around.
I like the look of and idea of adding more rounds, but when I recently shared my Christmas trees quilt with you, I realized I showed you 50% of my quilt finishes of the year, and my 2015 recap post is going to be a dud like the last couple of years. What if I just finished this one, without adding any more rails, so that there would be three quilt finishes in the recap? This one would then be 13 1/2 X 17 or thereabouts, which is a good size, yet small enough to fit on my bulletin board.
It feels kinda bad to end the quilt just to have a finish, but I can use the leftover rails and make a leftover of leftover rail fence quilt, and have yet another quilt finish to show you maybe next year.
