First Tuesday Post Belated

Earlier this year 2 blogger friends Nat and Ria started a challenge using the fence rail pattern. The other twist was to use their Singer Featherweight sewing machines VINTAGE.
I had lots of scraps and a brand new featherweight. Well being true friends all rules were amended to include me.
I am so glad because of the friendship I gained and the quilt I now have.
The fence rail blocks are made from scraps. My stash culling used any fabric that I could a 1 1/2 x 6" pieces. I now have a new table cloth large enough for the family table.

The border fabrics were purchased in the states a subtle version of red, white and blue.
A serious quilting weekend with friends and the fence rail quilt was almost finished. A binding from the stash and voila!!

A quilted table cloth with enough scraps from enough projects and items of clothing to keep everyone interested.

A special thank you to Natima and Ria for encouraging me and posting with me on First Tuesdays.

Enjoy the weekend . Celebrate prepare or just relax. Terry

That is a beautiful quilt. The red and white border makes me think of a watercolor with mat board and frame. You could hang this on the wall for sure.
