Latest Comfort Quilt

Here is my latest comfort quilt. It is for one of our respiratory tech's whose house burned a couple of weeks ago. The colors are really brighter than they look in the picture. Since I am using up fabrics I didn't have enough of a fabric I liked for the back, so I put it on a piece of yellow fleece I had.

Great job, Beverly. I like the idea of the decorative stitch on this, too. Someday I hope to do another one of these.

Beverly that is beautiful!!! I love the framed rails. Your decorative stitching is a beautiful touch, it makes the quilt reversible.
When you use flannel do you also use a batting????? It does look so comfy!!!!!!!!!

Those fabrics are lovely together. How thoughtful of you to make it for someone in need.

Of course, I personally know how thoughtful you are from when I purchased my first home last year and received a plant almost anonymously from someone who signed it with something that looked like an online identity nickname and I had never been to this forum and was really clueless as to who this person was! LOL. But it was very beautiful and thoughtful! I was touched that someone I didn't know would send me a housewarming gift!

Deanna, they are black. Camera was a bit off that evening. You are most welcome Salijo, how is the house? Have you finished up all your little projects?

Well, the house ended up having to have a couple of big projects that I wasn't counting on; so all the little projects have not been touched. But the house is still standing and it's inhabitable, which is basically all that is needed, correct? I'm grateful that I have it.

You are so right salijo. If it does it's job and it is all yours, then that is a good thing. Ours has reached the age to need some work, but it will have to wait a while. They are not have to haves right now.

Beautiful quilt, Beverly. I love seeing the pictures of everyone's work, but I hardly ever remember to check the gallery. The decorative stitching is an extra nice touch.

I love the yellow and black together. When you did the decorative stitching did you sew it directly or did you use a stabilizer of some sort?

RE: Latest Comfort Quilt
