On the Rails

On the Rails
table runner/wall hanging
17 x 44 inches
January UFO #2
On the Rails came together quickly once I decided to actually work on it.

The steam engine on this panel reminds me of the narrow gauge train trip that I made with Marilyn and her husband.
Silverton, CO
October 2017
I purchased the row by row kit (train panel and fabric for the two blocks) from Cotton Creek Mill in West Branch, IA after I saw it on Sara's blog.  The kit contained a generous amount of fabric for the blocks. The blocks and panel were framed with a black batik, and the outer panel was a red/black cotton from my stash. The runner/wall hanging will probably be bound with black or navy.

Both of my January UFOs are now FOs (finished objects).

  1. What a lovely way to commemorate what sounded like a fun trip! I adore trains and I loved traveling on them in Europe.

  4. Lovely! I really like that red around the outside. My row is made and hanging over a hanger in the closet along with another finished row. They are waiting for a few more so they can become a quilt or a bigger wall hanging.
