    Comfort Quilt--done in columns (scrappy)

    This one will go on my shelf for when I need a gift to provide comfort--death, illness, etc. I like to have a couple of these on hands.
    I think I saw this type quilt top on a Missouri Star Quilt Co video.
    I am caught up now. Have one more top to quilt to a fleece backing, then I can start some new projects with a clear conscience!

    Cute. Good for you on being caught up. I am still working on UFO's. My goal is to do one a month, but I start new things every month too. I can't help myself.

    Very pretty quilt and I'm sure someone will truly appreciate the time and effort you put in to making this quilt to give to them.

    I like the way you put the scrappy blocks with the solid fabric blocks. It looks great in a strippy. I haven't seen that done before.

    I'd never seen it done that way either & I really like it. It give your eyes a place to rest & that's quite soothing. This quilt will certainly bring comfort & joy to someone. You are so sweet to think ahead like that. And then to make something so nice for that purpose!

    That quilt is just lovely. It's such a nice idea to have a quilt on hand for occasions like that. I think I will try to start doing that too, and then hope that the sad occasions don't arrive.

    Good for you to be caught up. I was a short while ago and felt great. Now I have a couple I need to start, plus one to sandwich, quilt and bind. I like the idea of having a couple on hand. I've never had that luxury. lol Thanks for sharing.

    I think I should call these quilts "twice blessed" because I am certainly blessed to be able to make them and I am glad they can be a blessing to someone else. Thanks for all the kind remarks.

    It's a great quilt and I love scraps. I think they make the nicest quilts. So thoughtful of you to have some on hand when needed.

    I love the idea of a "comfort quilt". God knows they do give comfort--both to the giver and the receiver!

    what an interesting quilt. did you use charms & scrappy? Looks like it would be very easy that way. Thanks for the idea!

    Me, either! Love it! I've made a lot of scrappies, but never thought of putting a solid fabric in like this. WOW! Nifty work and so smart to get things done ahead. Hmmm....if only I could get one UFO done....LOL! Thanks for sharing!

    It sounds like you have a name for your project. "~TWICE BLESSED QUILTS~". I like it!

    I like the way you used the scrappy blocks with solid blocks too! Nice way to use up left overs, which I have tons of. This would be great for quick baby quilts! I am always needing those for customers to use as gifts! Thank you for sharing, it is beautiful!
