Touch of Comfort and BOM

I saw on many blogs about the Touch of Comfort program so I sent away for a kit. It was quick and easy and I used the machine for everything- even binding. (There's a first time for everything!) I had some bright variegated thread that I used to do a little meandering quilting. It made me smile while working on it so I'm sure it'll bring joy to a child in need.
Look how it came packaged! All cut and ready to sew!!
I finished the latest Vicksburg BOM from Dawn. I didn't realize how lumpy and bumpy this block was until I took a photo. Guess I better work on that!!
Sue from the UK has started a blog and she has some great quilts! Right now she's showing some wonderful toile. Be sure to scroll back a ways and see some older quilts. I'm sure she'd love it if you left a comment and let her know you dropped by.
So, I thought I'd do a little spring cleaning today then it decided to snow! What's with that?! We've hardly had a flake this winter.

  3. The comfort quilt is adorable! It should cheer someone up. Spring fever is hitting here too and we decided to have a garage sale on Saturday. So I'm digging through cupboards and drawers - and doing a little cleaning also.

  20. You comfort quilt makes me warm on the inside, Lori. Thanks for sharing the luv. Lumpy and bumpy and hilly, too? No way friend. See I looked at this and said - out loud - "aww, see... Lori! This is what I want to do..." I had a moment where I talked to you. My heart sorta came and reached out to you. So, well, the block had a different vibe for me man... ;)
