" 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

Now I remember......

.......why I don't do ruffles......or prairie points, which I love.

You can't quilt to the edges, and while on a hand-quilted project, you can quilt pretty close to the edge and then leave the thread hanging for finishing later, what do you do on machine-quilting. 

This quilt is so little that most all the lines of quilting were going to go to the edges !  
Hmmmmmmmm........gonna have to figure on this awhile.









Atleast I got my batting pieced, my "backing"made (that's a secret to be revealed later),

and the little thing basted..........













with help, of course !

  2. So what does it matter if you just quilt as close as you can get?? I have done a quilt with Prairie Points and didn't think twice about the stippling. I guess I don't understand the problem. Love the colors!
