The Grieving Quilt

Did you know that quilting is grieving therapy? It is and it has kept me focused on making a Oh My Gosh Quilt. I used inch and a half strips instead of the original inch strips. I'm loving it and its using lots of fabrics.

How do you like my design wall? It is a outside table cloth with a hem sewn. Presto design wall. The backside of the table cloth is flannel.

And I've been stitching along on ole Benjamin Biggs blocks. Just for fun I added pink flowers, a nice surprise.

My sewing machine is calling me...

Frog Quilter


  1. Hang in there, at least you have quilting. Hugs

  2. Yes! When I was helping my parents this summer with serious medical issues, quilting kept me sane and out of depression. I am glad it is there for you, Liz. Your Omigosh! is incredible. You know I love it!
    Ah, the pink flowers on your BB block is a fresh look! : )
    Still praying for you!

  3. I'm so glad you have quilting to help you through this terribly difficult time. Your quilt is looking beautiful.

  4. I'm so sorry about your son and prayers for comfort and peace for you. I had the total opposite effect..when my husband passed away just over two years ago, I wanted nothing to do with quilting. I've just recently started doing much of anything but my heart's still really not in it!!

  5. The quilt is looking lovely. I will continue to pray for a healing, comforting spirit to surround you.

  6. The last few days I have been sewing with friends at our local LQS. One friend brought back Omigosh from Houston, a test block was made at the original size. Then I made one of the nine patches and one of the four patch inside a square using 1 1/2" strips. It convinced a few of them to join in the fun.
    I'm sorry to hear about your son, I will keep you in my thoughts.


Gribbit - I'd love to hear from you.
