Modern Rail Fence

Donna brought this to me..this is her first Modern quilt. She used warm colored batiks and a cream colored background with swirls all over.



She made this for her niece who had chosen the color scheme.



I have quilted many for Donna and was wondering how I was going to quilt this because I know she wanted a modern feeling…but the colors were so warm and organic….I wanted to bring something of a mix to the design. I have used this design in small areas..but never as a whole design on a quilt and I am just so pleased with the finish.

It’s organic, give the quilt movement but still simple enough to have the modern element.

  1. The quilting is great. Love that modern look on the rail fences….gives it so much more movement than the traditional….
    Funny, and I just love tradationsl:)…..

  2. Hey, it is great! And I absolutely love the backing as well……eyecatching design.
    Beautiful job on piecing and quilting….
    As noted above, you always seem to intuitively know how to quilt every design. A real talent. Kudus to both of you!
