Happy Tuesday! Today I have a free quilt pattern download to share. This quilt pattern was originally released in my short-lived newsletter, but I thought I'd make it available for download here on my blog!

Fenced In can be made with 15 fat quarters or 50 jelly roll strips. For my quilt I used my friend Holly's Brushstrokes fabric collection.

Find fat quarter bundles of Brushstrokes in Holly's shop, here.

 It takes advantage of strip piecing, which means the blocks come together fast!

  1. Love this...I always have strips left from projects...24 large shoebox/totes full and all color coded at this writing. Going to start making strip sets today!

    1. How did you quilt turn out? I have scraps to use up as well.

  2. Wonderful springy quilt!! Thanks for writing up the directions.

  3. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your pattern!

  4. This reminds me of the first quilt I ever made back in 2002, I think it was called Split Rail Fence or something like that. It's the only strip pieced quilt I ever made and I was so unsure of myself that I let the little old ladies at the quilt shop tell me the "rules" of picking fabrics for quilts... Let's just say there ended up being a lot more beige and brown in that quilt than I would have cared for! Seeing your pattern in modern pastels reminds me that fabric choices can make a huge difference! I like yours so much better than mine...

  5. Thank you for sharing this pattern. It looks super cute and easy, too!

  6. Love this pattern! I am the leader of our church's quilt group of 10 ladies and 1 man. I hope it is okay to share your pattern. We quilt for charity.
    Thank You.
