Comfort and Joy -Section 8 Done!

While my dear husband went golfing this afternoon I was able to finish Section 8 of the Comfort and Joy quilt!  It is a great sense of accomplishment to get this top done!  Thanks to my quilt mentor and aunt Bonnie for helping me get this done


Then I sewed the whole top together!  I like how it came out. Two issues though..... The left side of the top was about two inches shorter than the right side!  So I added a strip of fabric to the bottom of the angel block. Second issue is that one of the fabrics ended up meeting in the middle of the quilt. I thought about changing it but then decided to just leave it. 

Next decision is how to do the borders.  Not sure whether or not I will do the appliqué on it or not.  I am leaning toward just some fun Christmas fabrics.  What do you think?

  1. Oh, it looks so good! I think a small plain border, like a frame (red or green) and then a Christmas fabric for a larger border would finish this quilt off just right. Pat yourself on the back for making such a challenging quilt!!!!
