Building Fences


I do like making and gifting on charity quilts. So when I saw the Scrap Basket Quilt Along with Crazy Mom Quilts,  I just had to join in.  She gave a lovely tutorial on building a Rail Fence quilt, but you could make any type quilt for this.  Now I have made a few of these, but the scraps I pulled would have to be modified.

   
My SIL had used some of my FQ bundle of 'Peak Hour' by Riley Blake for a stroller quilt.  So I had to work the stripes and dots left overs in a 'broken' fence with a mix of squares of those too cute road signs and cars - couldn't cut those up.


I used the serpentine stitch on my machine with the walking foot to quilt this - yellow thread top and bottom.  The binding was in my left-over binding drawer and I thought it worked with the wheels and signs.


I used a plushy for the backing - BANANA - love the way the quilting looks.  A fun, bright, and cuddly quilt.

This will head out to Margaret's Hope Chest after the holiday.  You can read more about this on Amanda's blog - and please visit those linking up.

Sewingly Yours,
