COMFORT AND JOY PART 5 AND MORE

Today is posting day for those participating in making "Comfort and Joy".  Here is section five.
This was a fairly fast section to make.  The section for September has more parts to it than this one.  No waiting to the last minute to get started on it for me.

I also have a finish.  I finally finished stitching the binding on this little wool on cotton wall hanging.  It is a combination of Cheri Saffiote-Payne patterns.  I did echo quilting and I like the look.  The background fabric is the same one I am using for the Cottage Flowers blocks I showed in my last post.

The past week I have been prepping applique blocks for "Mrs. Lincoln's Sampler Quilt".  A pattern by Lori Smith.  My applique storage notebook that I made recently is just about empty and I needed to fill it up again.  The pattern is a combination of applique and pieced blocks.  All the applique blocks are prepped and I am working on cutting out pieced blocks.  I have a big pile of reproduction fabrics out and I want to be able to fold and put them back on the shelves soon.  Thus the push to get things done.  I have not been doing much actual stitching this week because of that.  You can see what the pattern looks like by clicking here.  I am using similar colors.  I enlarged the blocks to 7 1/2 inches instead of the five inch the pattern calls for.

Back to the sewing room.

  2. I really like your wall hanging, Karen.
    That Mrs. Lincoln's Sampler is a beauty--very ambitious. When I push myself and get everything for a quilt top prepped in advance it makes things come together so smoothly. I just don't push myself often enough. : )

  11. The comfort and joy quilt is coming along nicely. I wish I could have joined the sew-along for that one. I have the pattern. But, alas, I've got my finger in too many pies to start another one. . . I like your new header too.
