Rail Fence Baby Quilt

This little quilt was made with scraps from vintage floral sheets and pillowcases which I purchased on Etsy.   The fabric is mostly 50/50 polyester and cotton blend — it’s very soft, but not as nice to sew with as 100% cotton fabric.  Because the patterns are so similar and there was no way to create contrast, I decided to put sashing between the blocks.  The quilt is tied with embroidery thread and bound with the same strips I cut for the blocks.
