‘Rail Fence’ quilting

Fences and Clamshells …

I love using domestic machine quilting rulers and get to play with them on charity quilts. At Essendon Quilters, we have a program called ‘Quilts for Others’ that supports many people in the community both near and far.

I choose to participate by doing the quilting, as it challenges the decision-making process. What design would suit a quilt, or how can I use a particular ruler on a quilt.

A ‘rail fence’ patchwork pattern easily lends itself to walking foot quilting. Thinking outside the ‘square’ opens up limitless options, as there is no right or wrong way to quilt any quilt.

So for this little quilt, it’s clamshells! This time it’s with ‘Yutien’ rulers.

Lots of fun, quick progress and keeps the brain active too!
