This month’s BOTEOM is “Split Rail Fence.” Elizabeth McInnis put the directions together for us!
In December we voted on the color scheme put together by Mickey Beebe: Georgia won, which is based on a Georgia O’Keeffe painting with Jade Green, Capri, Snow White, Titanium, Silver, and Blue Jay
From each of 5 colors, cut an 8” x 2” strip
From a sixth color, cut a 1”x 10” strip
- Sew the 8 x 2” strips together to make a rail fence block. Press.
- Make a cut across all four strips
- Sew the 1×10 strip to the cut edges. Make sure the ‘rails’ still line up.
- Press and trim the block to 8” square
Ideally, the insert will contrast with the parallel rails.
Let’s do this with fabrics that read as a single palette color.
