Quick rail fence for a gift.  I stewed and stewed on the dark, really thought it would show the "rails"..., but no, the light won out.  The whole color/contrast thing still stumps/surprises me.  Stipple and machine binding.

It looks great. Try taking photos of your fabrics lined up and then change the photo to black and white. It will show you how fabrics will blend or contrast. An old tool called a Ruby Beholder works the same. Its a deep red piece of plastic to look through; they were used alot when the watercolor quilts books came out in the 90's.The pics also help find stray blocks that might be turned wrong or in the case of a sampler, too many like colors together.
