2016 LUV Quilt: Rail Fence Quilt

Easy-peasy quilt! It's the Rail Fence Quilt with unlimited possibilities!
Basically, it's a square block with stripes. You choose how many stripes you want. You choose if you want a scrappy look or a unified look. You choose how big your block will be.

I found the picture at Thank you.

A Cactus Kilter Quilter's Challenge for you...
In 2016, make 3 LUV quilts: 
1 for your car, 
1 to donate, and 
1 to donate to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Why? Have you've been outside lately? Do you have a quilt in your cars for that just in case! moment?
I taught for a craft company through craft-parties and had to make samples to show. I learned - sort of - to make the first one for myself and then make one as a gift. You see, I never had any of my crafts to display because I gave them all away! Now when you come to my home you'll see a variety of my arts on the walls and tossed in piles.

Now a LUV quilt for yourself is valuable to you. You never know when you're going to need it and for whom. For the super fast quilters, pop a couple in your car!

As for the donated quilts, the LUV quilts and Wounded Warrior quilts, they're a continuation of a project Pueblo West Quilters have done for years. Except the over-achiever quilters seem to be the ones who step up to the quilting frame while this CKQ can barely manage to get a graduation or baby quilt done! So the challenge is for myself. Make those quilt tops into quilts! And if I have this problem, other quilters might too. One way is to set deadlines so I did.

Since LUV quilts have a drawing at the Holiday Party, I'd say to have these 3 quilts done by the November meeting. PPPPPsssssst! Get the car quilt done ASAP since more cold weather is coming!

You might as well get the other quilts done too because August is when the 2016 Quilt Challenge is due. But more on that later ... you need to come to the meeting for your inspiration ...
