brownie - another little November quilt

With some of the last bits of brown in the scrap bin, I pieced together some rail fence blocks. Little ones, maybe 3-1/2". At first I ended to do something else with them, like maybe a larger sawtooth star block, but in the end I stuck with the brown rail fence blocks all lined up in alternating alignment. I think I finished it up last weekend. The last three days are a bit of a blur with church/work events so I know it was before then.

It ended up at about 19" x 25" after washing. I was able to use even more of the brown scraps for the binding, and was super glad I hadn't cut everything up in little strips for the blocks! I am not so found of brown but I think it ended up cute. To keep with the neutrals, I used a couple of fabrics that I've had forever in my bin for the back. I separated them with a cream polka dot, but as I look at it now I would probably make a different choice if I were to start over.

Next up are a few little pouches and probably a lot of "therapy" sewing to decompress from the last three days! And that whole holiday thing. Happy thanksgiving!
