“Rail Fence” or “Simple Pinwheel” looks great in many colorways. Click here to see Krystin’s quilt in pink and purple. Click here to see Stacy’s patriotic quilt. Click here to see Marjorie’s scrappy version. Click here to see Rachel’s “Peachy” quilt on her blog stitchedincolor.com.

Beautiful quilt! If it were for a baby, I’d probably do primary colors, but I have so many nursery prints, I’d pick some of those.
I’ve been itching to try a red and tan combination.
I have a bug fabric that would make a good border so it calls for bright green, red, sunshine yellow and chocolate – or I might use the bug fabric for a row like you did. Summer seems like an ideal time to get out the bug fabric!
Most likely in my favorite color, purple. Different shades.
Different shades of purple and orange.
I would make it in butterfly border outside with matching colors inside to match .
I would do it in sea glass colors of greens and blues.
Such a nice quilt pattern. I would make 2 – one in boy colors (blues/browns/greens) and one in girl colors (pinks/yellow/oranges).
How about a rainbow version??
Cute. I might make in blues, denims and brown or beige.
Thanks for the chance.
I have a border fabric of sailboats and the seashore. I’d use that with shades of blue, tan, and red.
I have some pretty teal poka dot. mint green pokadot, orange poka dot, and yellow. and blue.

Green, gray and orange since my daughter is expecting her third and she likes those colors!
White background with navy and red for a QOV — great pattern!
Maybe yellows and greys, or all brights. Thanks for the chance to win.
