News from Marion in Mass, USA
The charity quilt I was working on is finished. It is the first quilt I have tied, using embroidery thread (all six strands), and tied with a square knot. I was browsing in one of my quilt books, and realized that the name of this pattern is "Rail Fence", which takes on a completely different look with so many fabrics used. (I have made a rail fence quilt with only three colors, and wider strips, than the 2 and a half inches in these blocks.) We don't know how many quilts will be made by our group yet, because we have until September to complete them. This one is a small one. I had extra blocks, so this has 6 blocks across and 8 down. Each block was 6 and a half inches.
