Plenty Plaids, almost a Flimsie Fence Rail

This was  Bonnie Hunter's/Quiltville Leaders and Enders project, a Fence Rail.  Thanks Bonnie!  I tend to sit down and SEW until it's DONE - prefer to NOT drag it out.  There is one more border to go, then I'll bind it in black.  There are parts of MANY shirts in that quilt, and a few strips that refuse to conform.   

It is astonishing how many varieties of Fence Rail Quilts people come up with!

Can't believe you have it pieced already!! It is wonderful!
Apparently the slow growth of a leader/ender project is NOT your style. : )
Really love the checkered row. Such eye-appeal!

This looks fantastic. As your quilts always do. May your bobbin never run out...

Good looking quilt. Please tell me the black and white is a print fabric not a bunch of little squares you sewed together. Those black and white elements really make the quilt though. The lighter shirts are subtle and the black and white adds the kick. Great job.

Oh, my! Those checkerboards are pieced! Well worth it - they really do make the quilt sing. This is a very lovely rendition of the design.

Great idea! The black and white checkers make the old fence rail much more interesting.
