a copy of Cultural Fusion Quilts last spring and have spent much time pondering how to jump in. This morning I happened to stop at Sujata's blog and see that there is a rail fence quilt along happening and since I have the book and I have plenty of fabric, it seemed a logical jump.
This morning I have cut enough strips for 9 blocks and have stitched two. Now I am off for a bike ride but later I will get back to the stitching and I believe this will go together lickety split. The blocks are big - 16" finished, so I am planning make 16. I am using a lot of bright, contemporary fabric that has mostly been gifted to me but it would also be a great project for my plaids.
On another note, Lynn and I are talking about a Jen Kingwell quilt along. Let me know if you want to join in. Since I go back to work next week, this will be mostly a supportive project - not a hard and fast quilt along.
Hope there is time for stitching in your day today.
