This makes a 6" block!

Great for borders! :o)

Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

I suggest that you pick two floral prints from the same fabric line, a small and a medium floral print!

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

Start by marking and cutting the Color 3  4" x 6-1/2" rectangle into two 2" x 6-1/2" strips...*Note! If you are using a directional print for your fence pieces, be sure to have both the fence posts and the cross posts going in the right direction! :o)

Then mark and cut the Color 1  1-1/4" x 5" strip into four 1-1/4" squares...
Now sew a Color 3  1-1/4" x 4" strip to the bottom of the Color 1  2" x 4" strip...then sew the Color 1  2-3/4" x 4" strip to the bottom of that...
Next, add the second Color 3  1-1/4" x 4" strip. Lastly add the Color 2  1-1/4" x 4" strip to the very bottom. Use all 1/4" seams for these. Press seams towards the darker fabrics. Cut this unit at the 2" point as shown. ( In half, vertically)...


To make the pickets, place a Color 1 small square right sides together with the top left end of a Color 3  2" x 6-1/2" strip. Mark the diagonal on the back of the small square, and sew ON the marked Line. Cut off the excess seam allowance of the small square only. Press the remainder towards the outer corner. Repeat this with another small square on the top right corner. Make two units like this...
