Comfort and Joy - Block 1

After seeing this quilt show up on various blogs as part of a quilt a long I decided I "NEEDED" to make it for myself. I absolutely love sampler quilts that use patchwork, applique and embroidery. Pair that with a Christmas theme and I am hooked every time.

This pattern is from Silver Thimble Quilt Company and can be bought here .If you would like to see versions from other bloggers you can take a look here and here

I used the fusible method of applique with a machine blanket stitch to secure the pieces on. This meant I had to reverse all the patterns but that is easy enough to do by just flipping the pages over and tracing on the backside then tracing that (reverse) image onto the the paper side of the fusible web.

This is such a fun quilt to put together and I can't wait to finish the other blocks. I really hope I can finish it up before the Christmas season. I will keep you posted...
