Comfort and Joy

Well, I think Judy has forgotten all about Comfort and Joy, but I haven't! I have had a lot of fun with this pattern. When I first got it I just about panicked, but after quite a bit of obsessing about how to start, I have loved it.

I believe this is the block we were supposed to finish this month.  It was fun and easy.
I hadn't been able to figure out how to do the angel's hair or crown or whatever, so I just jumped into it and did it.  I'm going to embellish it anyway.
And here are the blocks sewn together. I got on the green outer border and have the appliqued outer borders ironed down.  I'm appliqueing a little every day.  Then I can worry about quilting it.....or not quilting it!!
I have several other things going that I can't talk about! Christmas is coming!

Oh, that is just wonderful. I may just have to buy that pattern although the last thing I need is another Christmas quilt. :-(

What a fun Christmas quilt. So many wonderful blocks. Makes me happy seeing your pics.

WOW Lois, this quilt is great. There's so much to see. It will be a hit at Christmas for sure.

Yep, she's forgotten about the Stars and Stripes Sampler too, but that's okay. I'm enjoying what Judy shares of kitty, critters and garden - and then there are the QALs. I love how you did the crown and hair - just right. You've done a wonderful job.

I love the fabrics you've selected for Comfort and Joy. You are right I haven't heard Judy talk about this project in a long time. Perhaps a reminder about it and Stars and Stripes Sampler would get her attention once again. Judy always has lots going on as we all know. Your rendition of the hair and crown on the angel is perfect. Sandi
