# 17 Comfort Quilt

Caught up with Civil War top, been playing with a quilt called 9-Patch Delight got the centre together and now 2 sides of the border need pieced and attached think I need 26 more 9-patch blocks left to make for the top and bottom borders, I cut this down and it still is going to be big hope it will fit my frame. I try to make tops that I can quilt as it gets so expensive to get them done professionally Cinder the cat was trying to help me lay out the blocks ya right

Eventide is now a top

Made the last 6 Ohio stars and attached still not fond of the quilt procrastinated, I could not start a new quilt til this one was a top or it would have been stuffed in the closet, it will have a home going to Randy's aunt as a house warming gift, guess now I need to go through my stash for some backing fabric. I found a new project which is just 9 patches in one of the newer quilt magazines can't remember which one, it will be made out of my stash so another scrappy one :)

#13 Little Blue Basket

Forgot to post pic of the 13th block for the Civil War Anniversary BOW haven't got last Sat. block done yet will do them tomorrow with the next release.

3rd finish for this year

Finished with the binding for this quilt(Starry).
Got back from Vancouver on wed. went to see my baby sister she was not doing well at all she is in the hospital and I figure she will be there for quite awhile, she now has no movement in any of her limbs, they are going to insert a feeding tube into her stomach so she gets better nutrition, and she is on more antibiotics, I will most likely be going back to the coast again.
Need to get the 2 civil war blocks done yet the next one will be released tomorrow.
It is a beautiful day today still got snow which is going but not fast enough for me at the coast the cherry blooms were out plus the primroses, dafodils and roddies.
