Comfort Quilt Finished and Gifted

I realized a couple days ago that I hadn’t written a post yet about finishing the comfort quilt for Kathy, who is the sister of my best friend, Mary. Kathy tragically lost her 49-year-old daughter, Sandra, to a stroke in June. Sandra was an extremely vivacious person who loved life, especially after she became involved in Christian ministry in her 30s. Mary and I designed this quilt together. The first part she wanted to include was the “God Rays” which I free-style paper-pieced on 11 x 17 sheets of copy paper.

The bright sun in the above photo washed out the center Angel panel. Below is a pic that more clearly shows the beautiful angel. I actually like how the narrow yellow sashing arches over the angel.

We also included two cookie cutter angels using a pattern by Amy@ During Quiet Time, two half-square triangle crosses, and a country style church (pattern purchased on Etsy). Amy of Amy’s Creative Side did the quilting even faster than her typically quick turn-around, so that we could send this finished quilt off to Kathy as soon as possible. I’m happy to report that Kathy loves the quilt and is considering framing it. At 52” x 53”, it would make a fairly large piece of wall art!

Linking up to Meadow Mists Designs Favorite Finish Monthly Link-up July 2019, and I will also be linking up to the 2019 Finish-A-Long linky party in October as this is one of my 2019 3rd Quarter Finish-A-Long goals.

    Hi Mary! This finished piece just gave me the chills. What a nice remembrance piece of Sandra for Kathy. I kind of hope Kathy uses it and can feel all the love that is radiating out from this piece but I’m so glad she loves it. What a nice job you did and a really thoughtful, kind act. Great rays too! ~smile~ Roseanne
