Comfort and Joy!

It's that time again! We are sharing our quilt-a-long progress for this fun pattern by Pat Wys at Silver Thimble Quilt Co. It's hard to believe that another month has passed but without further delay...


Part 3


This was SO fun to work on! I am also making an extra block each month, so that my quilt will be large enough to fit my guest bed. I added some Sue Spargo snowflakes, but I don't think she will mind. She's really nice like that. The pattern for them can be found in her book Crimson Tweed.




Now go take a peek at all the other quilters participating in this fun project!

You can find them here:

And a very big THANK YOU to Anne for getting us organized!

    1. Well, I was going to do a wreath or mistletoe but those were too hard...so easy snowflakes won! I'm lazy like that. :)

  3. Love your snowflake filler blocks. And...good job on those pesky stars. I ended up doing mine in wool because I just can't seem to ever get those angles right.

    1. Thanks Anne, I like how the snowflakes turned out as well. I did not piece the stars, that seemed a little risky to me with those angles. I used freezer paper applique and invisible machine stitching. I cut the stars from a single piece of fabric. It was crazy trying to get the freezer paper out of those skinny points. But it turned out well in the end, so I'm happy with it.

  4. Such a cute block and I love the idea of making another block so that you will have a bigger quilt when your done - perfect. Love seeing all of the different blocks. I'm almost caught up - just need to stitch some of my wool pieces down - now on to the Santa block :).

    1. Thanks, I am having so much fun participating! My favorite part is seeing what each quilter does to make the quilt uniquely their own. It's so much more exciting than just working alone. I feel really lucky to have found this group!
