" 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

What in the world do I name this quilt? New name --" Cathedral Dreams" !

I never have trouble coming up with a name for my quilts..........they usually name themselves while I'm working on them.
Truly, I must have made this one WAY TOO FAST, because the poor baby remains nameless.

But he doesn't remain unbound !
The wind and sun tried it's best to keep me from photographing this one, too, but I prevailed !
First, a shadow or three.......

Then, too much sun......

Then the wind.........

and MORE wind !

Finally, I tried another inside shot......
Still no luck !  Actually, my best shot was in the computer room, while the quilt was resting
 beside me on a stool !
I kept trying ~!~
I think that I was afraid that the quilt would get all wonky when I washed it........
you see, I haven't used polyester batting alot
in the last few years, and I am more familiar
with the wonderful soft drape of a cotton batted quilt.

But, as you can see, Aunt Edith's quilt puckered up just right, and both quilts are ready to be wrapped, boxed, and shipped off to Michigan.

I had forgotten that quilts made with polyester batting would do the 'crinkle thing' too ! 
Ooh, how I love the look of them fresh out of the dryer !
Many thanks to QuiltingCyclist for her name suggestion below in my comments......I think that's just the perfect name !


  1. Happy Mother's Day Dolly! I love that you put your mom in the header today, that is such a sweet photo of her. She was wonderful.
    I also like the photo of Seth crawling, what a cutie!
    I would love to reach out and touch those lovely, crinkly quilts. I love how they look fresh out of the dryer too:) Hope your fingers are feeling better.

  2. Tell us more about the design inspiration for some naming ideas...Also, how would you characterize the color of the quilt?

  3. Let me suggest Cathedral Dreams. Your quilting is reminiscent to me of the Gothic Cathedral's with arched, intricate stonework as well as lacy, colorful illuminations in the stained glass. I have studied this period of creativeness. The designs were reaching to heaven and God's glory. Better yet, maybe you have a favorite cathedral from this period and would want to name it for your favorite. My personal favorite is St. Chappelle on the Isle d'Cite opposite Notre Dame. Whatever you name it, it is glorious!


Thanks for stopping by !
