October Block of the Month

This month's block is called "Rail Fence" or "Split Rail". I've seen it called both of those. This block should also be fairly easy to do. You will need 3 matching fabrics. One dark, one medium, and one light. You can put them together however you want. Again, make it as organized or as scrappy as you want. Here is what you do:

1.) Measure out and cut strips from each fabric 2 1/2" x 26".

2.) Sew strips together to make a strip set in the order you like best.

3.) Subcut your strip set into 4 blocks measuring 6 1/2" each.

Assemble this way:

Again, if there are any questions, please email me. Have fun!
