I found this version twist of the Rail Fence really exciting. I love to play with fabric in new and interesting ways, mostly this happens when I'm experiencing a happy diversion.
I used the Rail Fence blocks from |Cultural Fusion Quilts" book by Sujata Shah in a commission quilt. I used the method from this book to create what I thought of as water flowing over the whole quilt, in the full view you'll see what I mean.
This next photo displays how in my mind these blocks can behave int his manner for a memorial quilt for someone who lived beside a river all his life would want.
This block is also very interesting if you use blocks from two color sets.
These last two blocks of grey/white fabric prints doesn't really stand out as much as the other blocks, I think they invoke a calmness that Sujata enjoyed in these blocks.
I will make many more quilts from this one book. I call that a bargain.
Happy Quilting everyone!
