New Quilt

Hi friends!
I had a jelly roll and my plan was to make a  rail fence quilt for a neighbor with cancer.
I made a bunch last night, 12 but one is on the couch, needed the seam ripper.
I honestly think that this is ugly! Their are about 4 different prints and 7different colors.
I am trying to think of a way to make it prettier.
I may put strips of white between each block. I have to trim them to the same size first.
I am really not liking sewing them together with out some relief between them.


  1. use them for the center of stars. make them with geese and white or lights to lighten it up. you may end up loving it

  2. I agree with Dawn. Maybe making it into stars or something like string blocks. Maybe square them up, then cut them on the diagonal twice. Check out Teresa Down Under on FB, she may have something she always seems to have interesting blocks.

  3. I rather like them as they are have been thinking of making a rail fence quilt for my brother when he finally comes out of hospital. Will be interesting to see what you do with them
