When I was making the quilt and cutting the squares for the rails, I didn't have quite enough fabric to get another full square, but I kept the leftovers figuring I would eventually rip out the stitches and have some 2in x 5in fabric bricks to play with later.
Well, three years have passed and I still haven't ripped out those stitches. Then came along my newest postcard swapping theme "Skinny Skinny Strips", and I knew just what fabrics to use. These leftover rail fence blocks, or wannabe blocks, were just the right size to fit on my 4 x 6 postcards with enough fabric left over to make the skinny skinny strips on the top. I added a flower and leaves to go with it and Viola! My newest postcard! I only needed 4 for the swap but I made seven. So now I have some extra to send out. Time to enter some 1 on 1 swaps and send a couple in the mail to some friends. :)
|This is the rail fence quilt I made in 2007 with an extra photo of the quilting. I practiced my feathers on the blue and green fabrics and did some swirly Qs on the pink fabric and bug fabric. It now resides in Tennessee with a good friend.|
