Good Fences

This was a tough theme for me. . . mostly because I was slow to sign up and all the obvious things were already taken. Then I remembered the quote “good fences make good neighbors” which comes from Robert Frost’s poem “Mending Wall”. I can say that this quote has certainly proved true in my own life. “Nuff said.

This block is traditionally pieced and it is easy. . . BUT there are 32 little pieces that make it up so sewing a consistent 1/4″ seam is important or things might get wonky in a hurry.

Just a note- if you want to make several of these blocks, I give strip piecing instructions at the end of the pattern. There is also a section that will teach you how to “snowball”.

  1. Not sure who’s in charge of making sure we get all the Quilt Mania blocks, but I’m seeing 3 pictures for ones I can’t get to. Listed are House & Tree. Pictured but not listed are the swing set and what appears to be a school house with people in front of it. Am I missing something or are those links missing from the list.

What are your thoughts?
