Rail Fence & Stars

Replicate these chocolate brown stars in pieced cream backgrounds or feature your favorite lights and darks. A blue ombré inner border and red print stars in the sashing pick up the flecks of blue and red sprinkled throughout many of the brown prints. All fabrics are from Mary's Chocolates by Mary Koval for Blank Quilting.
