Scrappy Rails

I saw a pattern for Scrappy Happy Rails in Amanda Jean Nyberg's book, No Scrap Left Behind. It gave me the starting place I needed to make Scrappy Rails.

I wanted to use up some more of my black/white strings. I first used some of the strings when I made Black and White and Red All Over in March. Amanda Jean's pattern seemed like a perfect fit. 

My rails are black and white and I used fabric scraps for the colors in the quilt. I used the red dot in the quilt for the binding.  The quilt is 53" by 53" and has Dream Cotton batting.

I quilted a large loop-de-loop pattern all over the quilt using white, 50-wt Aurifil thread and my temperamental Bernina.

The back is a black and white fabric with red.

This donation quilt is ready to go.

We have a busy week this week and then we have a two-week trip so there won't be much progress made on quilting projects for a while.


  1. Love it! And for some reason, I have a lot of black fabric. This looks like a great way to use up some. And I just bought a large remnant of black and white that would be great for a backing. Here's my project for next month!!

  2. Great pattern for lots of strings and strips. Love the brights you used to spark it up.
