Rainbow colours and Rail Fence

Time to post to Rainbow Scrap Challenge again, the week just flies by these days.

Colour for this month was Indigo but there were a few folk, myself included,
for whom indigo was going to be difficult on the fabric front so
a substitute  of orange of neutral was allowed 

they are a very deep orange and granted two of them do have a little
red in there. I didn't want to use light shades in the "mountain" because
of the neutrals making up the background of the block.
Two more should be made this week.

Rail Fence with Sujata had me busy on a few more blocks this
week, these blocks go together like a dream, so quilt and the freestyle cutting
is extremely liberating!

I only have four more blocks to put through the machine
to have my 12 block quilt, hopefully I can get that together
this week.

To see more more from the Rail Fence Quilt Along organised
by Sujata head over to
Cultural Fusion Quilts

Happy quilting for the week ahead.



  1. #2, is like a castle with lots of little windows, love those colours together.

  2. Cheerful blocks. The free cutting rail fence blocks must be liberating! Happy Sunday to you.

  3. I knew you had a vast collection of brights, but I'm catching on to how extensive your background fabrics must be!

  4. Your orange blocks look great. I particularly like your lights as they have real life to them.

  5. I adore your blocks! (Orange became my new favorite color when I wasn't looking...)

  6. Lovely mountains in orange or are they passion peaks? Those rail fence blocks look like so much fun to put together.

  7. Incredible fabric choices in your mountain blocks!

  8. When I get to it, Indigo won't be a colour I'll be able to use either. I love your orange blocks. Also your liberated Rail Fence blocks are so cool - a technique I'll have to try one time... I had a look at the Cultural Fusion blog - wow you really are on a roll with your blocks :-)

  9. I love your Delectable Mountain blocks and plan to start making some for a quilt of my own. Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. Having fun, as usual. It's a treat to see all these blocks come together. Rail Fence #1 (because I know you have #2 in mind already) looks very interesting. The contrast of solids and prints is going to make a striking quilt.

  11. Great oranges and I love your rail fence block

  12. Beautiful oranges. You will be way ahead when we get to the last few colors.

  13. Love the orange mountains. And what will you do in the orange month?

    I've seen a lot of those Rail Fences in blog land lately. What fun.

  14. Love the way you have combined the Orange peaks with the interesting lighter prints. Re your previous post, I had to laugh at your cat's hideaway, because I had the same problem with my old cat. She would go under a bookshelf in the back of a closet and no one could reach her. Poor thing was hurting and she had to leave us a few weeks later. I do miss her.

  15. LOVE those colors, prints and blocks! You go girl!

  16. As usual you have the nicest fabrics in your blocks. I especially like the second mountain, with the windows (I'm sure I've got a piece of that somewhere!) and the colours in your rail fence block.

  17. I do love these mountain blocks! Great choice for your backgrounds, the lighter prints keep it interesting (much more than a simple solid or even low volume would). Looking forward to seeing more of your rail fence blocks too!


Thanks for visiting my corner of blog land, hope you'll call by again soon. If you'd like to leave a comment for me I'll get right back to you.
