Rail Fence Quilt

Those pictures were taken in London where two of my sons are living. I did this lap quilt for my youngest son. He lives in a cottage and asked me a quilt that would match with the style of his decoration. I understood that I should use brown and beige colors and find a graphic design. I chose the Rail Fence pattern. This is an easy pattern, quickly done. The quilt is machine pieced and hand quilted. The size is about 54" x 54". On the last picture you can see the large brown border. I must say that the result is stunning in the lounge of this cottage and my son and his wife are very happy with it.
