Rail Fence Block Challenge - The Final Reveal

Today is reveal day for the Rail Fence Block Challenge!  

If you are catching this post for the first time and aren't exactly sure what I'm talking about, there are two other posts that preceed it.   First is my Fabric Pull post where I share the fabrics that I'm using to make my Rail Fence Reimagined quilt.  Second is the Sneak Peek #1 post where I show making the traditional rail fence block.  Next is the Sneak Peek #2 post where I shared the split block and now the final reveal. 

I'm so excited to share my Split Fences quilt with you and let you know that I have a brand new quilt pattern available for it too!  

From the moment I started on this quilt, I knew exactly where I wanted to photograph the finished quilt!  At the local nature preserve, volunteers recently build a true split fence near the parking area and I knew it would be the perfect location for a photo shoot.  (Stay tuned for more photos of other quilts from this location - it is gorgeous!)

If you get frustrated sorting thru blog posts trying to figure out how to make a quilt, I've got another big surprise for you!  A free pattern for my Split Fences quilt.   I've taken all the information I've share in the blog posts and written a complete pattern.   Here is the link to download the pattern.

If you want to join in making a quilt using the same fabric colorwary that I'm using, here are links to the precuts and yardage in my Etsy shop. 

Precut 2-1/2" strips

2-1/2 yards beige tonal yardage

I put together a fun video that shares more about the Split Fences quilt.  Here is the link to watch and be sure to check out some of my new dance moves as well as quilting footage.

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 revealing our projects today - Monday March 29th.  
















You can also follow along with the challenge using these hashtags.











If you are enjoying the block challenges as much as I am, stayed tuned for April when we re-imagine a Pinwheel block!
