Rivervalley's November Block

This months block is brought to us by Jane.  Thank You!!  As promised Jane has kept her block fairly easy.

It's a rail fence block!  To make a quarter of the block you will need three 2 1/2" x 6 1/2' pieces of different fabric.  Sew together and press as shown.  Make three more blocks and sew together to make a 12 1/2" block.

My block is a slight variation of Jane's Rail Fence.

I stripped pieced six 1 1/2" strips, and then cut four pieces 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" and substituted them into the centre strip spot.

Paulette came up with several variations on the theme.

Offsetting the centre fabric makes for a great alternative.

I have been shown a few blocks made from last months presentation.  Wonderful.  Paulette had hers ready to go in time for the meeting.  Here are her pictures.

 The machine button hole stitch with variegated thread makes for a nice finish on her block.

I'm looking forward to seeing lots of variations on this months block.  Next months block will be brought to us by Judy.
