Free Pattern Friday – Diamonds in the Rails Quilt Pattern

Diamonds in the Rails by Jennifer Ofenstein b

A few weeks ago, I shared the wedding quilt I designed for my husband’s brother and his new wife. I dubbed the quilt “Diamonds in the Rails” because of the diamond pattern inside of the more traditional rail fence.

This was supposed to be a tutorial, but I guess I should know myself better than that! I started writing and what began as a tutorial ended up as a full-blown pattern. Oops!

It’s been a while since I had a Free Pattern Friday, so why not?

My version is made using Northcott Stonehenge for the “rails” and Northcott Artisan spirit (I sadly can’t remember the specific print name) for the “diamonds.” All of this fabric was left over from my Project of Doom 2015. I talk more about this quilt and it’s design in this TTMT.

Diamonds in the Rails, as shown, finishes 76” x 88” (plus 1/2″ for binding). I’ve included some ideas for variations in the pattern including how to make a smaller version as well as a coloring page for those of you who like to plan your fabric placement.

Diamond in the Rails is an easy peasy pattern you can crank out in no time. Use strip & chain piecing to make it go even faster. If you make your own version, I’d love to see it!

Enjoy! ♥
