Heidi’s Comfort Quilt

I am way behind in posting pictures of my completed quilts.  I finished the comfort quilt about a month ago.  It was given as a group gift to one of our friends in our Sunday morning walking group.  It includes inspirational sayings that were picked out by members of our group.  I have never been a fan of “scrappy” quilts but there is something about this one that really appeals to me.  I just smile when I look at it.

Week 2 of the QAL

This weeks’s goal was to finish cutting all the neutral fabric and to piece 5 large and 9 small blocks. Goal achieved. If my math is correct, I have cut 1317 pieces of fabric to make a lap size quilt. Yikes!

Comfort Quilt-a-Long

This week marks the start of the Comfort QAL (Quilt-a-long).  As soon as I saw this quilt I knew who I was going to make it for.  I am not normally a fan of the “scrappy look” but something about this one appealed to me.  I hope the recipient will like it too.  Week 1 has us cutting all the medium and dark fabrics.  I am making the lap quilt so I needed to cut enough fabric to make 79 small and 30 large blocks.  Our second goal was to purchase and/or source from our stash all the neutrals that we will need.

Week 1 goal complete.  Here are my bright fabrics all cut and ready to go.  Quite an eclectic mix of prints and solids (436 pieces).

I’ve even got a head start on next week’s goal since I have already cut up all my neutrals as well (872 pieces).
