EQ Tutorial Tuesday
Rail Fence Borders!
I had several people ask about the rail fence border when I did the fall blog hop.
Here was the layout
Doing a Rail fence border is EASY!!
You can do it different ways, but first let me show you the way I did it with THIS one.
I created the main part of the quilt, then the first border.
(my block size is 9" BTW)
The first border is 2" wide.
Now I took note of the SIZE OF QUILT INCLUDING THIS BORDER!! which is 49"
then I added the 2nd border and chose BLOCK and I picked 7 blocks on each side, it's divisible by 49
(the cutting is 2 7/8" but that's okay)
Then back to layer 1, I found a rail fence block and added to the sketch book.
(you don't have to pick a block with just 3, it can be more or less rails, that's up to you)
by holding down CTRL and the block, I clicked the second border and this is what it looked like.
Then I went back and pressed ALT button AND rotate block button while clicking each side of the borders to rotate the rails around to go clockwise around.
I may not be able to list a tutorial EVERY tuesday, but if the inspiration strikes me I'll schedule it!
Now this is my first time trying LINKY tools, I figured these tutorials would be a different way to link up. so play with these ideas and link up from your blog, showing how you played with the rail fence borders.
I wrote about Judy Martin's star power yesterday.w
