I posted my Comfort Quilt being made, and many of you sewed along with me. I did not post my finish here though!  My Comfort Quilt was shared on Instagram and Facebook, but I like to have a record of each finished quilt.

The Comfort Quilt

Comfort Quilt by Amy Ellis - from Modern Heritage Quilts

I loved making this quilt again. I don’t often make the same quilt more than once, but this one is easily a favorite! Mixing all the background fabrics in the blocks makes for a lot of cutting. But I love the variety.

When I was ready to quilt it, I opted to use a marigold color thread. Yellow has been a favorite color lately, and it’s mixed in throughout the quilt. So that the quilting thread didn’t overwhelm the piecing, I did simple (random) diagonal lines. This is a quilting design that I made myself and have used often. It’s an easy all-over pattern that doesn’t distract from the piecing.

The backing fabric, is from Alexander Henry. I found it on clearance at Joann, and knew it was destined to be a quilt back. At the time I didn’t have a project for it, but had to have it and bought 4 yards!  For this quilt it is the perfect mix of color and crazy. HA!

The binding is a stripe from Robert Kaufman, in black and white. My original fabric selections were hot colors, with a pop of black and white. The stripe is the perfect finishing touch.

I’ve been guarding this quilt, using it but not letting it be abused too much. It’s just so special!

I hope you have time to sew a little today –
