Curve It Up – Rail Fence Block

#3 Railfence

I finished my next block in the “Curve It Up” quilt along being hosted by Jenny and Helen.  You can find the instructions for this block here.   I am using a lot of my hand dyed fabrics on this project and throwing in one commercial batik in each block  to make it interesting.

We had a nice snow fall Friday night so on Saturday Tim and I went for a walk in the bush.   Last year we discovered an old trail near our house and we plan to make this a regular walk to get us out of the house in the winter.  The more snow we get the more beautiful the trail will become as it is sheltered from the wind and the snow will continue to build up on the spruce trees. I’m still kicking myself for not bringing my camera last year so this year I hope to capture that winter wonderland later in the season.   Here is what it looks like right now.


The path widen and narrows and there are a lot of large tree laying across the trail so you can’t take a snowmobile down it.



  1. Your winter pics are gorgeous! I so love fresh snow layered in the pines.

  2. Your found trail is a gem! Your Curve It Up Rail Fence is awesome. My mind has been playing with a one block CIU Rail Fence quilt. We will have to see.

  3. That block is beautiful! And what a gorgeous trail. Heart-lifting, for sure. :)

  4. Very interesting block and I am amazed at how much snow you have already , it is beautiful !

  5. That's the pretties block using those curves I've seen so far, though I think nature's beauty takes first place.
