Friday Finds---of a sort

   After my post on no-reply bloggers, the general consensus was in agreement. ....most of those comments/questions are ending up in the trash can.    And then Miss Pat referred me to a link at Vrooman's Quilts that took me here to Jane's Fabrics.     She offers a good step by step talk on how to set your settings.
Update:    Dana shared this link for the google + users.  It's at Sew Many Ways.
Thanks, Dana.

  I had more requests for info from "no-replyers" on one of the more popular posts on this rail fence variation.  Apparently, it was shared on facebook.
  Below is the finished quilt.  I gave no details on the fabric required because it was a scrap quilt.  But a fair estimate for a small throw size is 1 yard of solid for the plain rails and outer border, and 2-3 yards of scraps for the mixture of squares.

   Also you will need about 1/4 yard for the inner border strip.
  If you plan a consistent layout for the mixed squares, I would think about 1/2 yard of each of the six would be plenty.   For a larger size, like a queen quilt, I would probably triple the amounts on everything!

Something new.......Maureen at Mystic Quilter is jumping in to join the SAL for the Gypsy Wife quilt.    It's a very unique quilt with a variety of blocks in a modern setting.     I will be watching....and debating if I can do an adaptation in the future.   I did set up a new Pinterest board for the GW quilts I find.   Right now, I am enjoying the slower pace I have going.


  1. I think people that are Google + are still going to have a problem, it looks like Jane's tute is for blogger. I did a post about no reply back in 2012, gosh this problem has been around a long time and included a link for the Google + problem

    Hopefully it's still relevant.

  3. Google+ is another set up as well as webmaster. And sometimes Iphone and tablets don't work either. There are so many forms and IOs - it really is up to the user to find out themselves. On the other hand - I do love that Rail Variation and may use that to tame my 2" barrel. It will mean making more blocks, but I have a LOT of little squares.

  4. I really like this rail fence variation.
    I have just barely seen someone post about the GW SAL. Hadn't heard of it before then. Some really colorful blocks going into that one. : )

  5. Great idea of yours to post the link re noreply-comment bloggers. Thanks for mention of my Gypsy Wife and the link to all details. Should be some good pics coming along there, as I'm not on Instagram I just join the link-up each month.

  6. I love scrap quilts and your fence rail quilt turned out quite nice! Enjoy your new quilt project.


Love questions and comments! No reply bloggers....if you have something to say, please include email.
