Rail Fence is a traditional block and here we give you two options to sew.
A traditional favourite
This traditional pattern is a real favourite whether you use two colours or the four that are shown in the thumbnail.
Our first block takes you through the techniques of rotary cutting and strip piecing; and then we cover how to piece the little segments together, show you how to pin accurately so that you have accurate seams joining.
This block can be sewn by hand as well and for subscribed members there are workshop notes for this too.
The Rail Fence pattern is often also used with three colours and with this strip-piecing technique the whole quilt top is made really quickly. Bear in mind when you do this that the colours on the outside are the two that make the rail fence; this also applies when you use even more colours!
