Last Spring, Carol and I were chatting via e-mail about the sweet quilt Wendy showed on her blog and how much fun it would be to swap 3" 30's rail blocks. We got super excited and we asked Wendy, Judy & Sharon to join us in swap. Kathie was going to swap with us but life got in the way! Everyone was thrilled and enthused and we started swapping immediately. We finished the swap a few months ago and my blocks have been sitting in a basket waiting to be sewn together. The other day I decided that I needed to get this quilt assembled before the new year!
Here's a word problem for you - teehee!!!
Plus - 414 3" 30's rail blocks ( 1,242 1.5" x 3.5" pieces)
Plus - 374 3" white Kona alternate blocks
Plus - 78 white Kona setting triangles
Plus - 4 white Kona corner pieces
Equals - 76" x 100" adorable quilt filled with great memories!
Ladies, thank you so much for playing along with me - it's a treasured quilt and one with a great story!
This quilt would be adorable made with darker prints for the rail blocks and beige/tan/cream, etc for the alternate blocks and setting triangles (Libby made one and it's great). Whimsical brights for the rail blocks with black for the alternate blocks and setting triangles would be super cute!
Thank you so much for visiting and please come again!
