Rail Fence Quilt-Along

Posted on 1st October 2020

During October 2020, I will be holding my first Quilt-Along. If you would like to take part in this QAL, we will be making the Rail Fence Quilt, or if you prefer, the Rail Fence Cushion.

The quilt is approx. 42″ square while the cushion is approx. 15″ square. Both of the samples shown above were made using Bluebell Wood Fabric by Lewis & Irene.

The Fabric Requirements for both the quilt and cushion can be downloaded for free from my Payhip Store.

I have put together a photo tutorial (using halloween themed fabrics) to show you how to make this quilt/cushion. There are plenty of details on this tutorial to help you make your quilt/cushion, but you can also download a Rail Fence Quilt & Cushion Pattern if you would like to have a printed copy to keep. The pattern does not contain colour images so it won’t use a lot of printer ink. You can colour in the images on the pattern if this would help you to plan your quilt. The last three pages of this pattern contain three different layouts for you to colour in so you can experiment with the layout of your blocks before sewing them together.

Happy Patchwork and Quilting!
