A finish!

I am so excited I finished my rail fence quilt! Finishing this quilt was my April Goal.
This quilt is a prayer quilt that many bloggy friends sent me blocks for.  A prayer quilt is a quilt made for someone who is either sick or going through a rough time. This quilt was made for a friend who escaped out of an abusive relationship.   I had started the prayer quilt ministry at my church in TX.  Unfortunately I do not have a group of friends here in MO to help me with the ministry, but I do have several bloggy friends to help!
I had fun taking pictures of the quilt outside in my backyard!
I just did quilting in the ditch across the strips going both ways.  I did not mark it so some of the lines are wonky in the off blocks.  I quilted it on my Singer Industrial Treadle who is 124 years old!  She does a great job!
Of course my cats had to model the quilt also.
Tiger
 My husband said he liked all of the different reds in the quilt, I told him that was a scrappy quilt.  My favorite kind!
Oreo

 Warning - a very fuzzy cat butt!  I have never seen such long hair on a cat's behind before, and what a gorgeous tail!

I used a very soft flannel for the back that I found in my stash.  I had to do some piecing because there was not enough.
This was my first red and white quilt and I really love how it turned out!
