It is always an exciting day when I get to reveal something new. I am thrilled to show you the latest pattern from Highway 10 Designs - Not Your Mother's Rail Fence Quilt.
This quilt is a little twist on a traditional pattern. Rail Fence quilts have always been popular because they come together easily and they just look good. We have varied the strip widths to give it a fresh look.
This idea has been brewing for a while now. Kathy made the pattern in a much softer colorway. You can see more of it on her blog.
This pattern is definitely beginner friendly so I enlisted some help piecing the top. I cut, Kyla sewed the strips and Kendra was responsible for pressing. Everyone got their favorite task, so we had a lot of fun, and it came together really quickly.
It is amazing how much you can accomplish via email. Even though Kathy and I live more than 500 km apart, Highway 10 Designs is truly a joint effort at every step along the way. Here is one of the photos she received when we were deciding what color I should dye the backing.
The darker purple it was. I tried out a new pantograph called "Joust" on this one. It has nice even coverage so I'm sure I will use it a lot.
I want to say a big thank you to all our friends, guild members and customers for all their support and encouragement of this venture/adventure that Kathy and I are on. We are enjoying this next step in our quilting lives. And I can't forget a big hug to our proof reader Eileen, your attention to detail is truly appreciated!
