Rail Fence & Stars

Replicate these chocolate brown stars in pieced cream backgrounds or feature your favorite lights and darks. A blue ombré inner border and red print stars in the sashing pick up the flecks of blue and red sprinkled throughout many of the brown prints. All fabrics are from Mary's Chocolates by Mary Koval for Blank Quilting.

Assemble Sashing Units

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each red-and-cream print 1-1/4" square.

2. Align marked red-and-cream print squares with two corners of a dark brown print 2x9-1/2" rectangle (Diagram 5; note direction of marked lines). Stitch, trim, and press as in Assemble Blocks, Step 3.

3. Repeat Step 2 to add marked red-and-cream print squares to remaining corners of Step 2 dark brown print rectangle to make a sashing unit (Diagram 5; again note direction of marked lines). The sashing unit should be 9-1/2x2" including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 24 sashing units total. (Set aside remaining marked red-and-cream print 1-1/4" squares for inner border.)
