Scrappy Red Spinners

One of my projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year has been making Rail Fence Spinner blocks. I made Rail Fence blocks for the RSC all through last year, ending up with two small quilts at the end of the year, which you can see HERE and HERE. There were still some blocks left after that, and I started using them in groups of four to make spinner blocks. Here's what I was able to make from last year's leftovers.

I've continued making more of these blocks for the RSC, mostly using them as leaders and enders while working on other projects. However, this week ended up with a day of nothing but rail fence stitching. I made seven more red blocks, plus finished the last green block from January.

The red blocks for February combined with the greens from January make a very festive display! Each block will finish at 6".

Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. 

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Such pretty progress for those Spinner blocks, Julie!

  2. The month is just half over and you've done so well with keeping up with the red scrappy stitching. Very fun blocks.

  3. Oh, they're such spinning fun!

  4. That is a really fun Rail Fence variation. I'll have to keep this in mind for the future.
