    I'm wanting to make rail fence in a certain pattern. I found this thread on here from a while back http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-36001-1.htm. She called it trip around the rail. Does anyone know where I can find instructions to do this? I'm not sure if it just using one block or 2 blocks.

    Thanks
    Holly

    It's all the same block, each with three strips. The color and orientation create the pattern.

    There's the center solid square, and then 9 rounds. Looks like it might be 7-8 fabrics.

    You can make the squares any size you want; each strip would be a third of that size.

    In the picture, I would guestimate the blocks are between 3.75"& 4.5" finished
    .
    That would create a quilt anywhere from 73"x95" to 87"x114". Actually, if those are 8' ceilings, it's probably the smaller. So strips are cut 1.75" each.

    Here's the correct link:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-36001-1.htm
    There was an extra period.

    There are no 9 patches in the quilt. It is all done with rail fence blocks.

    On page 2, she tells where she found the quilt pattern. It's beautiful!

    Boy, that trip around the rail is one beautiful quilt. I like making rail fences guess I'll have to try and find the book.
