    Comfort Quilt

    My sister from Oregon came in September and we made comfort quilts for her family. 6 of them. From her decesed mother. We started one for her, as well, and I am finishing it and this is how for I got this weekend. Couldn't wait to share. The center block is a special PJ and the strips are from some of her shirts. I used some pink/white breast cancer awareness fabric that I had in my stash to sash it. I still have to put a boarder around it out of the same material. Not sure what next, maybe she will weigh in here and tell me what shr wants. She cut the blocks and strips while she was here, but the material was so stretchy that it was hard to work with. So I cut 10.5 squares from muslin and did the sew and flip method for the blocks. First time I used that technique. I am going to do some scrappy that way, I think. Anyway, here it is.

Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

    What a nice idea and rememberance of her mother. I especially like the quote from Onalee Rose. Amazingly, when you get away from all of the 'drama' people, your life calms down and you can think clearly and breathe again.

    May your new year be blessed and prosperous.
