Vintage Christmas Sampler – Wonky Barnfence Tutorial

This time I am going a little bit more modern with my block – I have made a Wonky Barn Fence. It is still entirely out of vintage fabrics – but the only measuring I did was cutting my squares.

This was such an easy block to put together!


Multiple strips in different sizes
Rotary cutter
Quilting ruler – I used a 6.5″ x 6.5″
Cutting Mat

Here are my strips – as you can see, there is no real rhyme or reason to mine – I just wanted to make sure there were no two combinations that matched.  You will use a 1/4″ seam throughout!!!

Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1: Sew your blocks – you will need 9 blocks measuring 4.5″ x 4.5″ each

Step 2: Lay out your squares and sew your rows together
Step 3: Sew your block together
Blocks don’t get much easier than that! Unless you are just doing a simple 9 patch.

Good luck!
