" 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

One week.......and hamburger meat fingers later.......

The baby quilt is quilted !
Be glad that this photo is slightly blurred, because them fingers ain't purty !

But the quilt is, and that's what's important.

Lord willing, I will trim the edges tomorrow, and bind it, probably
with the white fabric
that I used for the skinny border.

So here are the photos.

First, the quilt when I finished basting it in my frame on
the front deck.
You can see what I meant about it already looking
like a quilt, and yet, not the design I was going for.

Next, a close-up of a corner........
And for the back, .......a pretty, soft flannel in pale yellow........
If she really has her heart set on a wholecloth quilt,
she can always turn the quilt to this side.

And last, but not least,
the  pieced front.
The center and the corners look
like they are the same fabric, in this photo.
But they are not.  The center is like a tea-dye,
 only paler,
and the corners are a beautiful soft floral in the same shade.
You can make out the fabric a little better
in this shot.
Not quite a whole-cloth quilt, but hopefully satisfying,
while being just a little bit
more interesting.
Now, let's hope it squares up well
tomorrow, under the ruler and rotary cutter !
