    Cafe au Lait Diamond Rail-Fence...Ahhhhh

    This began as a lap quilt until we had a week of "cold" Florida nights and realized we did not have enough blankets here in our snow-bird state. The "lap quilt" (framed by the white border) grew to 72" X 90" so now it is just the right size to throw cross-ways on our King bed. Let the cold commence (at night only, please)

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! I've got 2-1/2 strips from Charisma. I think this pattern will work.

    Great way to make it bigger. Love all the browns. Sorry it is so cold in Florida. I understand about the cold nights.

    Love the colors--it's always nice to have an extra blanket around, too, even in Florida. Donna

    Great idea. I like the addition of some florals to your earthy colors. Good job.

    Great adaptation! We quilters are nothing if not adaptable to the situations presented to us. Pretty quilt too!
