Fence & Rail Baby Quilt Finish!

After what feels like forever I have finally finished my fence and rail baby quilt! The top is made out of a jelly roll. I am a bad quilter and do not know the fabric line. Opps!

This quilt is a milestone for me because I was able to go from start to finish on the quilt and do it all myself! It feels good to need less and less help each quilt. Ok I admit, I did need to double check on the sizing and how to use my binding tool.

I followed the chevrons on the back as my quilting guide. I am so proud of myself because I didn't mark my quilt lines, but trusted myself to sew a straight line down the middle of the chevrons. I do think this is my best quilted quilt yet!!

I even got to use my first custom label! I know they are small and a little on the boring side, BUT I thought I'd start somewhere.

I do have to say that I am not super in love with them. When I tried to hand sew them the fibers kind of broke apart. So I machine stitched it to make sure it didn't break out of my hand stitches.

Linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!


  1. Your label is just fine. Small is pretty :-)

  2. Great job! I remember when I first started using my binding tool lol. Let's say I spent a lot of time with my seam ripper because I always managed to get the binding turned the wrong way! Now, I hardly need to even use it :) I like your labels, plain and simple is great I think!

  3. it is gorgeous .. and that would be a Kaffe Fassett jelly roll !!!

  4. Thanks Ladies! I am so glad you all like it! :)
