My first two quilts were rail fence quilts, the first for my son and second for my daughter. Their stories are contained in the two labels. I made pillows that went with my son's quilt, but no photos were taken. A photo of the pillows that went with my daughter's quilt are attached.
Also, here is a sewing / quilting tip:
Here's a sewing tip from Beverley Hilton: "For several years now I've kept one of my favorite scented votive candles (the soft type that comes in its own container -- apple cider is my favorite) close by. I stick the business end of my needles into the soft candle wax. It keeps the needles rust-free and lubricated, which of course makes them work better, and it keeps the sewing room smelling great!"
