It doesn't get much simpler than this--but with great fabrics, the results are lovely. Our 1-2-3 Polka is 3 2 1/2" strips sew together with a wider background to create a Rail Fence pattern. The cover girl is a blendy background to go with the blendy Sangria Bali Pop. A high contrast or light background should also create a great effect.
The fabric requirements call for 36 2 1/2"Strips and 1 1/2 yd for the Background/Large Rail. Any Jelly Roll-Bali Pop-Tonga Strips, etc will work. It finishes 57"x 76".
