Comfort Quilt Day

Has it really been a whole week since I blogged!? I'm slipping. I haven't been doing a lot of new sewing lately, but this past week was Comfort Quilt day so I'm showing some of the colorful results of that productive day.

We meet once a month at the Quilt Revolution shop in Gig Harbor to work on lap quilts for breast cancer patients. A cozy quilt can take the chill off of those chemo treatments.


The four-patch is made up of Hawaiian prints. The blue and white half-square triangles below also remind me of the ocean and waves.

Speaking of waves, here was the activity last weekend behind our house. We don't have "real" waves but we do get a lot of boat wakes that make for more interesting kayaking.

Have a colorful day

Hi Sherrie - I was in Port Townsend this past week and I though of you when we drove by Gig Harbor. We were on a tight schedule but I wish we could have stopped for a visit. It was so beautiful and green!!
