Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 12


Welcome to Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 12

It has been a week of spring cleaning, inside and outside

but I have found time to sew everyday.

Yesterday I saw a block on Instagram that I just had to sew.

It was a twist on the traditional Rail Fence Quilt.

The fabric is 

Violette 40 Karat Crystals Strips

that I bought on a Flash Sale at Fat Quarter Shop

These are the four strips I picked for this block.

I like the minty green with the purples.

The background is more cream than white which gives it a soft color look.

I saw the prototype for this block 

Here on Instagram @StoriedQuits314

I am loving this twist on the Rail Fence Block. 

Since there were no instructions for this block, 

I made my own version of it.

 of How Vasudha Made Her Block

I also follow her blog.

I am hoping  Vasudha @ Storied Quilts

will name her block and write the pattern. 

For now I have had fun playing with this block.

I decided to may make more with my strips.

I am using a roll of Bella Solids, Color 98,

as the background fabric for the rest of the blocks.

Here are my strips for Block 2.

I will not be posting any cutting or sewing photos

as this is not my block design.

I love this block! 

 Do you think it looks like a flower or a pinwheel block?
