Finally...........a completed quilt


I finished this quilt this week. It is going to the Squares of Hope group at the church I attend. We make and give out quilts for members or someone they know of who is sick or grieving. The fabric was donated by someone in the church. We have received boxes and boxes of fabric. I chose these five prints that seemed to go together and made this rail fence quilt. The batting was also donated. It's a high loft polyester. Not my favorite because it's hard to sew and work with. But it is warm. And it will comfort someone who needs it and before it is given out our prayer team at the church will pray over it.
Now I have to get back to Bob's (my hubby) quilt. It's a fish quilt that he picked out the kit for at a quilt shop we went to last September. I want to get as much of it done as possible before I start another for the church.
All I have left to do is to make a label for this quilt.

It is beautiful and I know that someone is going to really appreciate your thoughtfulness. How nice that your church does that.

Hi Kathy,

Just catching up with everyone now. What a beautiful quilt you made! Someone will be thrilled to have it that's for sure! I may just stop by the quilting class at Michael's craft store this week.

Isn't it the greatest feeling to finish a quilt? I love to sit back and admire it for a few days before I start my next project. I think quilting is the best therapy in the world. Your quilt is gorgeous, Kathy.
