Picket Fence Rectangle Throw Quilt in One Fine Day by Bonnie and Camille!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Today I'm sharing another quilt that was finished last year and didn't make it on the blog!  

This is Picket Fence in the vertical layout, one of two layout options included in the quilt pattern.  The other layout in the pattern is every other row of pieced blocks turned, which changes the look of the quilt completely.  

Picket Fence uses precut layer cakes in the smaller sizes and precut layer cakes and jelly rolls in the Queen and King sizes; and specific instructions are given on how to use each type of precut.  

The Picket Fence quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

The Picket Fence Quilt Pattern Features

Do you have fabrics that you love so much that you find it impossible to cut into small pieces?  This pattern is perfect for those fabrics.  Use your favorites for the large blocks and use your less favorite fabrics in the pieced blocks.  A variety of hues in the pieced blocks makes them sparkle more.

Picket Fence includes 7 sizes which pretty much has you covered for any project!  I ♥ to spoil you with as many sizes as possible in my patterns (and I also love to do the math)!

  • Baby
  • Square Throw
  • Rectangular Throw
  • Twin
  • Square Queen
  • Rectangular Queen
  • King
This quilt pattern is quick and easy with strip piecing.  Yep, even layer cakes can be used for strip piecing!  

Strip Piecing is sewing strips together to create a "strip set", pressing the seams a certain way, and then sub-cutting "segments" from the strip set, and then re-sewing the segments with other segments or strips to create a quilt block.  It is important in strip piecing that an accurate 1/4" seam be used so the strip sets end up the correct height.

Oh, Those Fabrics!

Those beautiful fabrics are Sunday Stroll by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.  Just so sweet with the large and small florals, plaids, ditties, and tone-on-tones in scrumptious red, pink, aqua, apple green, orange, and navy.

You can find Sunday Stroll right here.


For a different look, the quilt pictured below is turned the opposite way on the bed, with the pieced blocks placed horizontally.

Longarm Quilting

This quilt is quilted in a swirling design in navy thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.

This quilt top was made by Kare, one of my professional sewists.
