A few members of my quilt guild recently took a road trip to St. Augustine for a fiber art exhibit, lunch and the delightful Magrieta’s Quilt Shop. I loved a quilt she had on display from the Rail and Square Quilt pattern by Trudie Hughes. Back home, in my quest to reduce my stash, I started auditioning available fabrics.
I liked the orange but none of my greens excited me so I took a swatch and went shopping. The fuschia I settled on makes for a rather louder quilt than I had in mind but it was a fun exercise for me setting blocks on point for the first time and the backing softens it a bit!
