" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Border, border, border !

I couldn't believe it when I looked through my rubbermaid tub and found a piece of yardage that was just perfect for this quilt's border......Praise the LORD !
I think that the quilt is a much more usable size now, and I hope that the hand-quilting will be enjoyable.  Do I make myself wait until the Monster is finished?  Nah........... but I do need to save it for doctor's appointments and other times of waiting.  Better concentrate on finding a back for it now, though.  I don't think I'll want to make a pieced one, even though they are my favorites, because the extra seams are horrendous on hand-quilting.

As you can see from this photo, the wind is up today....

....March is trying to go out like a lion, but with two days to go, and 70's predicted for Wednesday, it may just have to settle down and go out quietly, like a good little lamb.


  1. oh DOlly this is lovely. the soft colors are amazing. i love the shot of it blowing in the breeze

  2. Hey Dolly! I have gotten sooo far behind on reading all the blogs I follow...looks like you've been very busy. Love this quilt, the colors are gorgeous. You do beautiful work! I am going to go back and read your other posts that I've missed, but probably won't comment on each one...please know that I am reading and enjoying them.

  3. beautiful, beautiful quilt. the colors are so calming and the border fabric is perfect.

    I had forgotten about the March myth of lion/lamb. he he. it's supposed to be nice here too for the beginning of April!

    thanks for sharing your heart and quilts with us!

  4. That border fabric is perfect, and I love, love, love the skinny brown strips next to it:)

    I have been crazy busy, Sarah got her driver's license this past weekend, so had to go to secretary of state, and insurance office yet again. But she's the last one, now I'm done:) But it is scary having two new inexperienced drivers in the house!

    When time allows I've got an idea that I want to put into a new quilt. Soon it will be too warm to work on my huge star quilt, I'll be putting it away till fall. I ended up taking it off the big floor frame and working in a hoop instead. So I want something smaller to work on for the warm months.

    Hope your hubs is getting on well, and the rest of your family too! And I hope you have a wonderful day today!!

  5. I love the borders! Perfect!!
    Now looking at the "Two sides to every story" quilt (that happens to line up right next to this comment space) this pattern has some similarities. I like them both!

    Quilt guild was canceled for this Thurs. :( What's with that? I am not happy about it! No reason was given on the phone message. But have made plans to go to Betty Bailey's on Friday morning so that will have to do...probably even better :)


Thanks for stopping by !
