Here is the finished comfort quilt made for a friend going through breast cancer treatments. Thanks to help from many on here, this was done in 9" blocks in a puzzle set. It started with 3 pre-printed panels of Psalms (Comfort of Psalms I, II, and III from Block Party Studios purchased several years ago). The rest of the pieces were scraps from other projects and most of them have a special meaning to me. I wrote up a little explanation to stick in with the quilt. To me, the lavender print border contains and calms the scrappy interior.
I'm not a designer, so starting without a pattern was WAY out of my comfort zone. Amazingly enough, it must have been meant to be, because it came together fairly well and fairly stress-free. It probably doesn't sound like that big of a deal to many, but even with scrap quilts I tend to obsess over-analyze each little piece. :) It has a Hobbs washable wool batt (from CT) and flannel back. The border and binding was not in my stash. It necessitated a trip to a quilt shop. This was a fun one. I started it on January 2nd and finished stitching the binding down today. I'm so excited to give it to her! I love her attitude. She has kept this very low-key, is very upbeat and says she is determined to laugh every day. I stuck in some silly fabrics just for that purpose.
