I finally have the pattern for the Garden Fence block for you!
I even found the first post I did about the quilt here which even tells what fabric bundle I used. I also showed more photos of my finished quilt just the other day here. This block is so much fun to make and would be perfect for a scrap quilt. I am going to share the pattern for the block only, amounts of fabrics…..that is up to you.
This will make a 10 ½″ block which finishes at 10 inches when you sew the blocks together.
Here are the cutting sizes:
- 1 – 4 ½ inch square of orange
- 2 – 1 ½ inch x 4 ½ inch muslin
- 2 – 1 ½ inch x 6 ½ inch muslin
- 4 – 1 ½ inch x 2 ½ inch muslin
- 4 – 2 ½ inch x 3 inch pink print
- 4 – 2 ½ inch x 5 inch pink print
The following diagrams show how to sew the pieces together. Here are all of the pieces laid out.
Now add the next row. Looks like I skipped a couple steps, don’t worry there is a diagram at the end for you to use too.
Here is the final block.
Now I will tell you why I really like this block. I have a bunch of string blocks that I made and did applique on and used this pattern. What I did was just pick a size for the center……….these are actually 6 ½ inch blocks and just adjusted the pattern to fit those blocks. I really need to think about finishing this UFO…..in fact I’m going to pick it for this month’s A Lovely Year of Finishes at Sew BitterSweet Designs.
I actually finished this quilt and you can read about it – Garden Maze.
The size of the muslin strips can be wider, I used the dark green in place of the muslin. Do you have any blocks that you enjoy making over and over?
