Wow.........this Spring's Bloggers' Quilt Festival is NO DISAPPOINTMENT, huh?
I have seen so many quilts that inspire me, some making me long to do one JUST LIKE the one I see !
Never thought I'd want to make another ruffle on a quilt. I made this one in 1987 or so, on this little log-cabin sampler quilt. I didn't care for the making of it, and figured I'd been there, done that, end of story.
But this week, 1 1/2 year-old Autumn Taylor was over and we were playing dolls (hooray, a little girl who still loves dolls !), and when I wrapped her baby in this quilt, the ruffle just made it adorable ! All I've ever done is put the quilt on a table or chair as decoration, but the size and ruffle are perfect for a girly-girl's doll.
So that's my starting point........back to seeking inspiration ! Boy did I pick the wrong time to switch to a slower internet connection.
Hope you're enjoying the 'show', and thank you to all of my new followers........hope to have some better posts soon !
" 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
