Hurray! Another finish! I've been feeling a little guilty as I've amassed quite a pile of tops patiently waiting in line to be quilted and I need to make a dent in those before I start anything new (yeah, right)!  Anyway, I finished up my rail fence quilt this afternoon (see this post)! I'm really pleased with the way this turned out, although I did struggle over the binding for ages a little while...
In the end I settled on a soft yellow with tiny flowers which I found in my stash! 
 I'm not sure if I like the front or back of this quilt better...
I think this print is so pretty and I wish I had more!
I've always loved rail fence quilts.  I haven't made one for quite a while - it's nice to return to a classic pattern every now and then!  I have an idea percolating in my head for another one.  But first...back to those tops!
Linking up with Amanda Jean!
Have a great weekend!

  1. What a lovely quilt! I like your placement of the plain red fabric in the quilt.
