    You have inspired me to get busy and finish some of my UFO's. Hopefully I can do that so I can make one of this pattern! Such beautiful colors.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very pretty quilt. I've been thinking about a rail fence quilt lately. Seems like it's very popular & pretty easy to make...a win/win quilt! Thanks for sharing.

    Those colors are refreshing...looks like lemonade with a bit of lavendar. Great to look at on a hot summer day!

    I made a Rail Fence a long time ago without instructions and it turned out fine. I'd like to do another (after seeing this beauty) but I'd like to be refreshed on the measurements. I assume the strips are 2.5" but help me out from there, please.

    Lovely quilt and so cheerful looking. It is sure to be a treasure for someone who may not have many treasures.

    my quilt is, indeed, 2.5" strips. cut 4 fabrics WOF and sew in strata. press all seams to the same direction. cut into 8.5 subcuts. finished block size is 8". repeat for # of blocks needed. the pattern shows best if the two outside colors are darker and the inside are lighter. HTH
