Scrappy Summer Rail Fence

We've been experiencing something of a mini heatwave here in the UK this week!

Almost too hot to get out and enjoy some local delights (well, I did say almost!).

While my sewing room has been 'closed' for 2 weeks, it's the perfect time of year to show you my Summer Rail Fence quilt!

This pattern is in the August issue of Pretty Patches (out now) and was the result of a fun weekend earlier in the year playing with scrappy strips!

I love the summery combo of oranges, soft yellows, pinks and teals, combined with the earthy brown stripe. Just look at the lovely styling it gets on the coordinated orange front cover!

The rail fence design is a classic, but there are many ways to give it a modern twist! And it is beginner friendly piecing too!

This would be an easy quilt to make for other seasons (think fresh Spring greens and yellows, warm Autumnal plums and browns) or even a Christmas version!

And of course, a great scrap buster project too!

Wishing you all some fun in the sun!
