An update from the Comfort Quilt team.....


This Tiny Homes Quilt top was made by Sally Hatfield who was a former member but is now at the Cotton Mill. Cherie quilted it and Carlinda squared and bound it.

This Comfort Quilt was made at our Sew Day. Carlinda Daugherty donated the material and also sewed on the binding.

 This CQ was made by Christa from our stash. It was quilted by Cherie and squared and bound by Carlinda.

Keswick Ridge Quilters Show and Tell – October 16 (guest blogger Carlinda Daigle)

Hello friendly quilters!

I was not able to attend the guild meeting in October- so Carlinda stepped up and helped a girl out!

Here are her notes!

 Heather made this beautiful hanging for her home and decided when her daughter’s best friend commented on how much she admired it, so she decided to make two. You always have vibrant colors in your work Heather.

Ella enjoys watching Donna Jordan of Jordan Fabrics on YouTube.  She saw this tutorial and thought “I can make that!”  So she did.  This was the first time she tried doing a bargello and said that it was easy following Donna’s instructions.  Anyone interested in learning bargello – now you have a resource.


This is Christa’s Trail Mix quilt that she modelled after Gail Mitchell’s concept.  As we all know Christa takes a pattern and makes it her own.  This quilt has been spoken for and will warm the heart of the recipient.  The greens and blues are lovely.

Christa made this lovely baby quilt.  Of course, she hand quilted it as you often does and included a few little appliqued characters along the border.  Nice job.

Reta attended our Dresden Village workshop on October 14 and made this lovely piece.  It is hard to believe that Christmas will be here before we know it.  Beautiful fabric selection Reta.  

Ruth is calling this quilt the Scrappy Stars.  She wasn’t sure what the correct pattern name was so scrappy stars it is.  The fabrics for this quilt were from a collection, Grace, from Moda.  Ruth enjoys making pillows so it was no surprise to see a matching pillow for this beautiful quilt.

A friend asked if I’d make an Irish Chain Quilt for her. It is a gift for her granddaughter who is studying medicine in Ireland. The granddaughter picked the colours; I chose the fabrics.  The quilting is done by Susan Arbeau.  The quilting makes the quilt; it is beautifully done as always!

Debbi tried her hand at making fold away tote bags. She feels that there is a bit more tweaking that needs to be done. Can’t wait to see your new improved version.

Evelyn shared this beautiful quilt that she just got back from our fellow member Cherie who quilted it for her. The colours complement each other. Nice job Evelyn! 

Heather found a use for pre-cuts that she won from many of the fun quilting themed games we play.  She does a lovely job making zippered bags.

 Thank you ladies for sharing your projects with us.  

Thanks again for Carlinda for stepping up and helping out - you are a gem!
