Comfort

This picture represents two of my favorite comforts.
1. I am a beginning quilter. I am learning to LOVE the art of quilting. It's relaxing. I am a firm believer of the old "Idle hands are a Devil's playground" saying. I have to be doing something. Quilting is my new 'something'.
2. I love snuggling in quilts! I love getting all warm and cozy.
When I look at all of the wonderful quilts that my mom has given to me over the years I feel closer to her. (She lives about 3000 miles away). I know she thought of me the whole time that she was hand piecing and hand quilting these beautiful treasures.

I'm thoroughly impressed!!! This quilt is beautiful, I love these colors! And I agree, snuggling in one of my mom's (or mother in law's) quilts is SO COMFORTING!!!!

I love the colors. My mom is a quilter, too, and I was thinking of taking a picture of quilts for mine, but I did something else instead. I love the shape and the color of your pieces.

I love the colors to! I'm amazed by anyone who has the skills/patience to make such a beautiful thing.

wow! Your quilt is awesome! I love that pattern! I might have to borrow it from you!

I also agree. There isn't anything better than curling up under a blanket that you know is just for you.

Very nice sentiment. I love quilts, as well. There is nothing like being under a big, heavy quilt to sooth cold times away!
