    Comfort Quilt

    I actually started making this quilt around 4 years ago (I'm guessing) and I had all of the row done, but I had yet to put it together. After all that work I just ended up putting somewhere and forgetting about, but then within the last year I've needed to quilt. I am low on spending money so making a new quilt wasn't an option, but then I remembered this quilt. I don't like it now as much as I liked it then. The white seems out of place, but it is a "comfort quilt" so I guess it doesn't matter. Anyway, I finished putting on the last 2 rows tonight, so I thought I would really show it off.

    The pattern is called "Comfort Quilt" and it was in the book "Victory Quilts" by Eleanor Burns.

    I like it! I think the white makes the other colors pop.

    Oh I am sorry you don't like it, I love it. I don't think the white looks out of place, I think it really brightens it up! But then I always love a little white in my quilts. Can't wait to see it finished!

    I like it too! I agree with the consensus the white helps the other colors stand out.

    Actually, the white makes this quilt look really "argyle" and quite attractive!

    A nice white border would tie the white in nicely. One quilted it will really blend nicely.

    It is great. I think having white and then beige outer setting makes the center seem to float.

    It wouldn't be nearly as striking a quilt without the white --- it gives separation and definitely makes the other colors pop. Lovely quilt!

    I agree. I think the white goes well with the yellow and they balance the darker colors of the quilt. I especially like the palcement of the small red squares.
