Here's another sneak peek at my new book, "Pattern-Free Quilts: Riffs on the Rail Fence Block," just published last month.
The book has a gallery of 26 quilts, most made by me, but some made by other artists whose names you will recognize. At first glance, you might not think that they're based on the rail fence block, but that's explained. Here's a quilt by Melinda Snyder:
I see each of the horizontal rows as a single rail fence block; for instance, the bottom row/block has 12 rails. It might seem like a stretch to call that a "block," but that's exactly what I'm trying to do in the book -- to stretch the imagination and explore what you can get out of a very simple basic concept.
