    Wacky Rails made by Linda

    This picture does not do Linda's quilt justice. She is such a talented piecer! I chose Hobbs 80/20 batting, a neutral thread (Summer Beige) and quilted with SID the entire body of the quilt. The borders I quilted with serpentine tube quilting.

    It is lovely. I like how the back turned out as well. Thanks for sharing.

    That looks like the "Lover's Knot" design by Eleanor Burns. It is a beautiful quilt!

    Yes, it does look like "Lover's Knot"; however, with this pattern (Wackey Rails) the blockes are pieced then cut apart and pieced again. The book has several different layouts for the finished block. I really liked the way Linda put hers together.

    Yes, it does have a name. " Wackey Rails " a pamplet that was popular about 4 or 5 years ago. I purchased the book from a quilt shop that is now no longer in business. I made a pink and green quilt from the pattern and sent that quilt to the Joplin, Mo. area last fall to be donated to the tornatoe victims. Right after I finished the quilt I gave my pattern away, knowing I would never make it again. Wish I could remember the name of the designer. It might be located by googling the web for it (?)

    It's really great to see how a straightforward stitch-in-the-ditch can be an excellent choice for a quilt. AND it works on the back as well. Really nice work, both of you!
