Fence Rail Star Quilt

MSQC New Tutorial on the Blog!

Learn to make this fun Star quilt with the flair of the Fence Rail with in the block!

I just watched Jenny’s Fence Rail Star tutorial, and all I can think is, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Jenny walks you through this simple way to put a fun spin on a classic Fence Rail Block!

Seriously folks, this quilt is so easy! It’s just strip sets and snowballs, nothing fancy. But somehow, those simple little elements combine to create a gorgeous, intricate pattern of stars and stripes.
Make this one up in red, white, and blue, and you’ll be set for The Fourth of July! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Strips and more…the fence rail kind

The fence rail, in my opinion is a fabulous go-to block.  It is quick and virtually pain free.  The best part for me about using a Jelly roll for this quilt (and pattern) is the variety you get.  I am all about the ‘scrappier’ look, and LOVE that it all coordinates!  It really  does make my life so much easier.  🙂

Another variation on the fence rail, would be to use less strips (or more) than we did.  You could also have the same fabric strip as the center and it would make a zig- zag design throughout the whole quilt.  (super cool….But, you may already know all of that!)  🙂

So, have you opened up a delicious jelly roll yet!?!?  Any projects under way?  I am dying to know….

*fabric used in our quilt was  one Fig and Plum Jelly Roll, by Fig Tree & Co. (moda) and coordinating fabric for the border.
