Friday Finish

Peace Comfort Quilt

I finally finished this quilt a few weeks ago and donated it to my quilt guild to give as a comfort quilt.  I made this quilt "pillow style."  That is, I sewed the front and back right sides together along with the batting and turned it rather than binding it.  That sounds easier than it was for me.  I had all kinds of problems measuring the backing and batting correctly and as a result this quilt sat in my WIP pile for quite a while.  To quilt it, I used one of the decorative stitches on my machine and stitched little half circles along the seams.  It turned out OK, but it's not my best work by any means.  I learned some things about machine quilting and keeping the back smooth.  I think it would have been easier to quilt if I had planned to do a binding on the edge. 

Thanks to all of you for your well wishes.  I'm getting better each day and have been assured that I will be happy someday that I had the oral surgery.  But I have to say I'm reaaally looking forward to eating something that isn't soft, white or yellow.  Applesauce, scrambled eggs and Greek yogurt can only take you so far.


  1. What a fun quilt!
    I hope your recovery continues smoothly!

  2. Beautiful quilt! How wonderful of you to donate it to your quilt guild as a comfort quilt. Hope you continue to recover nicely. I can see how you could get tired of soft foods.

    1. I still get the point of that too. The quilt is lovely.

  3. Your quilt and its destination are both awesome. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Hope your recovery continues to move smoothly. See you next month at Guild.

  4. What a fun quilt! The colours are very vivid.
    Hope your recovery continues well.
