Most rail fence quilt blocks are made with three strips. Today's showcased tutorial is a variation on the traditional rail fence quilt block. Made from flannel (flannelette) shirts, this memory quilt is bound to be treasured and loved.
Joy, from Joy's Jots, Shots & Whatnots, shows how to construct a Six Strip Fence Rail Block Memory Quilt, complete with buttons, pockets and tags. Flannel is loosely woven and can stretch over time. Joy's detailed instructions show how to avoid this.
Joy added her memory quilt to the Reusing Shirts & Ties link party. You might like to check out the following links at the Reusing Shirts & Ties linky...
