Simple Rails Quilt

This is what I did with the fabric I posted a few posts ago. It is called "Simple Rails" and, by the way, it is really simple. But, quite effective don't you think? It really is all about the fabric. Simple Rails is a good example of what you can do using three one-yard cuts of fabric. That is all it takes for a decent-size napping quilt. I even used up the bits and pieces for the binding. I found the backing in my stash (how very lucky for me). This is a free pattern you can find at http://www.twowackywomen.com/ In addition, Robin has a couple examples on her blog http://robingallagher.blogspot.com/. I hope you visit both sites and then go make that quick quilt you have been wanting to make for yourself or charity. Then send us a picture of your "Simple Rails".
