Add More Blocks for a Larger Quilt!

A slight modification to Fence Rail blocks creates a lovely overall quilt pattern with stars. There are no points to match so it’s a super easy quilt to make and one you can finish quickly.

Start with a roll of 2 1/2″ strips for the rails and stitch them together into strip sets. Or, use up leftover strips in your stash for a wonderfully scrappy look.

This quilt is lovely in bright, colorful fabrics. It will be wonderful in coordinated color combinations, too.

Jenny, from Missouri Star Quilt Co., demonstrates how to make this fun quilt in the following video. The fabrics you’ll need are:

  • 1 Roll of 21/2” jelly roll strips
  • 1 yd. of Background Fabric
  • 3 yds. Backing

The finished quilt is 43″ x 43″. It will be a simple matter to add more blocks for a larger quilt. Or, stop after one black for a lovely table mat.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
