    Thanks Tisha for giving me the privilege of working on this.

    How do you make the fence rail?? Is there a pattern to it? It is wonderful!!

    Hopefully the texture shows. I made rows of tucks with ribbons inside then stitched it down and flipped it around and stitched it the other way.

    Maybe not the best picture And the edges really are straight they just aren't laying straight in the picture.
    How did you do this technique??? I LOVE IT!!!! You are sooo talented!!

    To make the fence I strip pieced the little pieces and just figured how much space I had to work with and divided it into 5 unequal spaces. To make my math easier I had my middle piece smaller than the top and bottom pieces.

    For the main white parts of the fence I did basically a flying geese at the top.

    If you want a picture tute I can do that.

    To do the rows of tucks I took the width of the border I was making and doubled it. For this I used 3 different fabrics and I did each fabric by itself then sewed it all together.

    I believe my tucks were each 1 inch deep although you could do them however deep you wanted them. I measured in from one of the long sides 1 1/4 inch and pressed it the full length to the right side. From the fold I measured 1 inch and pressed it to the wrong side. I measured down from that fold 2 inches and pressed it to the right side. Measure 1 inch from that fold and press to the wrong side. Going back and forth until you have folded your whole fabric. For mine I had 3 tucks for each fabric. You should have 1/4 inch past the last fold to allow for seam allowance.

    I added the ribbon down the middle of each tuck. The ribbon should be laying flat but it does need to be pretty on both sides of the ribbon because when you sew it you will see the backside of it.

    With everything laying nice and flat (I used my big irnoning board) mark at regular intervals where you want to stitch. I went through and stitched every other one with it laying flat. Then you go back and stitch the every other one that is left going the opposite way which will make it stand up.

    Again, if you would like me to do a picture tute I would be glad to do that.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    I am happy to share but I need a little time. I should take a picture of my sewing room. My DD & family just left and what a mess the DGDs left in my sewing room.

    I'll do it hopefully the beginning of next week.

    It's done! I will be putting it in the mail this afternoon. This was a fun one for me. I wanted to kind of blend in with center "God's Eye" so I thought the doves of peace would work. My first thought was to use black as a back ground but glad I found the purple material.

    Oooh, that's very pretty. I've missed pictures of this one for the last couple of rounds. I love the flying geese around it too.
