As most of you know, my SIL shares my sewing space. I have to brag on her for a bit as she has really grown as a quilter. This was a free pattern she found HERE. She used 'Audra's Iris Garden' by Brannock & Patek for Moda. It was funny as I was playing with some mini charms of this line at the same time. And the little pinwheel dolly quilt I sent to Get Your Mrs Clause On - yup, the cut-offs from this quilt.
And this was a kit she picked up on a great sale at Connecting Threads. Yes, a rail fence is considered an easy block, but this one had 7 rails at 1.5" (1" finished) - so some real challenges in the 1/4" seam accuracy. Tips I gave her - lay a bed of tape to hold that seam line and LOTS of starch when pressing (don't man handle). I just loved the fabrics in this one.
Both were quilted by one of our local longarmers - they collaberated on the motif design used on both and he named it for her - Jeri's Popcorn Flower.
She's now working on a project out of my Scrap Basket Quilts book and can't wait to share the finish photos.
Hope you all had a safe and lovely weekend,
