Dreamscape Block Blog Hop: Day 2

Hello, fabric lovers! We're continuing to share our Dreamscape Block Blog Hop today. This is day two of seven different block tutorials for you featuring our luscious Dreamscape prints; we'll be featuring a tutorial each day through next Wednesday (we're taking the weekend off!). For this blog hop, we selected a six-color palette to play with: Navy, Cloud, Lime, Grape, Daffodil and Lead. You'll love the variety of blocks our designers have created! And make sure you enter each day's giveaway for a chance to win fat quarters of these six Dreamscape prints! Enjoy! 





Alison from Little Bunny Quilts is here today with a variation on the traditional Rail Fence block. Imagine what you could do with this design and these colors! Head over to her blog to enter to win Dreamscape fabric. 

Hello! I'm Alison from 
Little Bunny Quilts and I am excited to be back today at Sew In Love With Fabric as a part of their Dreamscape Blog Hop!

For this hop, I have put together a super simple block that is a twist on your standard rail fence or Roman Square. Say hello to Roman Ribbons!

Cutting:
Two (2) colored strips 3.5 inches wide by at least 13 inches long (I used one green and one blue)
Four (4) background strips 2 inches wide by at least 13 inches long



To the sides of each background strip, sew on your 2 inch background strips. Press towards the center strips.



Sub-cut strips into 6.5 inch widths. You will need two of each color for your block. Arrange as shown below.



Sew together and press. Your block should measure 12.5 inches unfinished.



Here's a mock up of a quilt you could make with nine of these blocks:



Come visit me at Little Bunny Quilts to have a chance at winning a bundle of Dreamscape fat Quarters!

Follow along each day of the hop!

    Love your block and the way it looks like woven ribbon in a quilt. I tried three times to go to their site so that I could see all the colors and their names, but I was not able to navigate the site. I do really like the dark blue that you used.
