    My Latest Comfort Quilts

    Here are a few of my latest comfort quilts I make for my guild. The first two are the BQ2 pattern, the last one is one for Project Linus. The blocks for the Project Linus quilt were make by first graders. It was one short so I had to add a block to finish it.

    Margaret you are doing wonderful things!!!! Thank you from all of us. Love the quilts, most especially the one the children contributed to. What wonderful things you are teaching the young of our world by making their artwork into such an important quilt. And love the BQ2 quilts also. Keep up the great work.

    They aren't my students. They are the students from two first grade teachers at Woodland Heights Elementary.

    Really lovely quilts. I especially love the Nursery Rhyme Quilt. I know the child receiving it will love it and think about all the children that contributed to it.

    I agree with both of those sentiments! I love these quilts (tho I guess I'm newbie-er than I thought because I wasn't familiar with BQ2 -- but I love it!)! And you are an angel to do this! Kudos!

    The ones the kids did are with permanent markers. The one block I did was with crayon. Mine is the center block on the bottom.

    The one by the 1st graders is great, I love their designs.
