Cultural Fusion Quilts blocks of Rail Fence

I think my readers will really enjoy seeing this whole layout and see what can be done when making custom quilts. I would love to do a workshop on using this book. Sujata's way of describing her process is really like sitting beside  her.

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!



  1. I love how you've incorporated Sujata's idea into a memory quilt. The colours and prints you've used are right up my alley!
