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

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Jesus said,
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

Watch your sugar count......

......cuz, here comes sweet OVERLOAD !

Here's a photo showing how I solved the problem of not being able to quilt all the way to the edge........I went around 3/4 of an inch from the edge, all the way around the quilt.  Then I straight-line quilted it.  I tried some meandering, but the tension on the other side made the thread just lie there........it looked awful, so I took it out.

I actually looked up an old ruffler that I remembered having,
 that fits my old Singer machine, and used it to make my ruffle. 
 I had some awkward moments with it, but all in all, I was quite satisfied. 

I then cut the corners of the quilt off round,
 by using my pin container's lid and  my rotary cutter.

Next, sewing through only the batting and the top one side,
I applied the ruffle with a quarter-inch seam, splicing the ends of the ruffle
 together as I finished.  I flipped the ruffle to the outside,
 turned under the seam allowance along the outside edge of the quilt,
 and carefully sewed it down by machine.
And, VOILA !
This is why I referred to the "backing" yesterday
in quotation marks.........
because I knew then that
I was actually trying to make
a truly reversible quilt this time !
You likey?

I am just over the top IN-SANE
 about it !
I confess that I meant to be making it for Autumn
Taylor, but am rationalizing keeping it
for all the baby girls that pass
through my house.  That's legit, right?

Shame on me !
