September BOM: Posts and Rails by Judy Martin

Did we all have fun with August's BOM the Texas Puzzle?  I'm so excited for the great turnout we had.  Everyone is so generous with their time and stash to make so many blocks!

This time the block is super easy - no bias edges, no traingles, no problem!  The block is called Posts and Rails by Judy Martin.  She has a Block of the Moment and the blocks are not archived once they are removed from her site, but luckily I found this image on Pinterest (where else??) and I'll share the info with you.  

Need a quick challenge rule refresher?


  • Bring as many blocks as you like
  • Each block = 1 entry to win a group of the blocks
  • The rest of the blocks will be made into an outreach quilt
  • Win prizes while giving back to the community!
  • If you are unable to make it to the meeting, you can still play.  Contact me for more info at communications@austinmodernquiltguild.com

Instructions: September BOM Posts and Rails
Makes one 10.5" x 10.5" unfinished block

Please use any combo of blue and green fabric.  Add a neutral if you wish!  These instructions use the colors I picked so you can follow along.

Cut the following:
  • (3) 2.5" x 5.5" strips of blue fabric
  • (3) 2.5" x 5.5" strips of green fabric
  • (2) 2.5" x 10.5" strips of contrasting fabric
Sew together like so:




Viola!  You're finished.  Now go make one or two or seven :)  If you have any questions, please ask!  And if you'd like, upload your pictures to the Flickr group.
