Rail Fence Block Challenge 2021 - Sneak Peek #1

These block challenges are so much fun and I can't wait to share Sneak Peek #1 this week of the Rail Fence Block Challenge.   In case you are catching this post first,  here is a link back to last week's post where I revealed my fabric pull for the challenge.  

Here is a first glance at my block! 

This week I've been busy sewing 6 "rails" to make my rail fence block.   I have several blocks already at this stage with several more to go.  And yes, I am making a dent in my autumn stash bin.  If you are wanting to stitch along with me, I have precut 2-1/2" strips in an autumn colorway available in my Etsy shop.  They are very similar to the fabrics I'm using. 

If you aren't super comfortable sewing together 2-1/2" precut strips, I put together a quick Watch Me Work video where I share a lot of tips and tricks about working with 2-1/2" precut strips.  

If this video was helpful to you, be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel to see more of my videos. 

The fun of a challenge like this is to see what everyone is doing.  Here is the list of Instagram handles of the participating designers.  Each of us are sharing a sneak peek of our blocks today - Monday March 15th.  

















Next week I will be sharing sneak peek #2 and you will be wowed when you see what I do with these blocks :)
