Red and Purple Rails finished

My most recent version – pieced border is cut 4.5 inches by various lengths, the inner red border was cut 1.25 inches. There is a flange inserted between some of the blocks in a zigzag manner to give a little pop of red to the center of the quilt.


Here’s a another version I made in Blue and Green. Note that the zig zags are not very distinct in this quilt so if you want to get that result, use two colors that strongly contrast like the red & purple quilt above.
