COMFORT AND JOY FINALE MAYBE

I am not sure if "Comfort and Joy" is complete or not.  I added borders and have not decided whether to add touches of applique to the border or if I should leave as is.  I will decide after seeing the finishes others in the group working on the same quilt have done.
Pay a visit to Anne's blog for links to view the other quilt tops.

My previous post shows the "A Little Porch Time" progress.  Both quilts were to be shown in final form today.  I took the porch quilt picture after 11 pm last evening.  I just could not face trying to get another good size quilt up on the design wall that time of night.  So, I have done two posts for one day instead of one.

Take time to sew today.  I know I will.

Love this one Karen, as well as your Porch Time quilt! Great accomplishments!

I like it the way it is, there is a lot going on in the quilt, so the border really frames it nicely. The most I would do is some nice christmas quilting designs.

Anne said...

wow, I can't believe you were working on the C&J and Porch Time both! Impressive! It was a fun project to do together tho, huh? Thanks for playing.

Kim said...

Both quilts are lovely! I think Comfort & Joy is just fine without more applique in the borders. And I love that dark red border fabric because it makes the quilt look so rich!

Lori said...

That quilt turned out stellar!

Both Porch Time and Comfort and Joy are wonderful! Must feel good to have them completed.

I love both your applique quilts! The colours are lovely. I think the Porch Time is especially nice because of the autumn colours.

Comfort and Joy looks great. I just got mine back from the quilter and am ready to sit and stitch the binding down. I didn't put the border treatment on, I thought it was too busy of a quilt and didn't want to take away from the center. ( I was really lazy but the other story sounded better) LOL I knew if I was going to do the border treatment it wouldn't get done for a long time.

It's fantastic Karen!

Melanie said...

What a great piece to enjoy for years to come. I don't think the borders need anything. Have you thought about the quilting part?

dianne said...

really, really cool Comfort and Joy ... and i still LURVE the quilt in your header - if i were you, i don't think i could give that one away, either ... unless, of course, it was going to dianne in colorado, who would give it a really, really good home - ha ha ha!!!
