Happy Tuesday! Today I have a free quilt pattern download to share. The Fenced In Quilt Pattern was originally released in my short-lived newsletter, but I thought I'd make it available for download!

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!

I chose to finish mine with simple diagonal lines through each block. For more info on my quilt, see this post. Download the free quilt pattern here.

A few details: This quilt finishes at 54"x66". To make it, you'll need the following:

- 15 fat quarters OR (50) 2.5” jelly roll strips
- 3 1/2 yards of backing fabric
- 62” x 74” piece of cotton batting
- 1/2 yard of binding fabric
- Coordinating thread

I loved making this quilt, and I hope you'll make one too! You can't go wrong with strips.

Happy Quilting!


  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!

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

  3. A sweet quilt for a sweet girl.

  4. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your pattern!

  5. 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...

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

  7. 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.
