"Rail Fence" from Joyce Brenden

This Rail Fence wall quilt was made from a Keepsake Quilting's "Bits & Pieces" medley of the month.  Reds and greens are my favorite colors to work with.  The gold stars are machine appliqued with satin stitching.  The quilt measures 39" x 44".

Joyce,

I love your quilt.  The colors are great.  The appliqued stars are a nice addition to that quilt.  What is the 'star burst'?  Embroidery?  Thanks for sharing the picture.

Love the colors!  Green is a favorite of mine.  If you get tired of this one...I'll take it!

I don't usually go for red and green together but I really like this. Nice work Joyce.

Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments.  Kathy, the star trails are just straight stitches done with 2 strands of rayon 40wt thread.

I love this quilt!  The colors are beautiful.  And I love the way the stars look like they are swirling.  I like that idea!

Joyce, I thought I had commented on your quilt, but I don't see it. I love your color choices and the curved lines you put coming out of the stars to give them a kind of spinning effect. Beautiful job.

Joyce, I love the way you did this quilt.  I love red and green quilts and decorate with them after thanksgiving day... the house gets transformed.  I love your stars - did you quilt the lines coming off the stars as part of your quilting or did you do that on the top - either way i really like that...

see each day for me here is a learning experience and i feel as though i am at a new quilt show.

Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us... It is beautiful

God bless,

Althea

Love this quilt.  The first one I made was rail fence but you have made it special with the stars.

Beautiful quilt and great color combination. The yellow stars are striking. I use a lot of reds and greens in my Baltimore Album quilt blocks.

This quilt is lovely. The addition of the stars and the lines making them "swirl" really give it personality. Your color choices work very well, also.

The stars really compliment this piece and make it "shine".  Loved the quilt, keep on stitching!!!
