" 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

Autumn's Awesome Polka Spots




Glory Hallelujah and praise to the LORD above, this quilt has been SAVED ! (no pun intended)  You  can just barely make out a little distortion in the stripes on back, IF you know what you're looking for.   I took out the straight-stitching, and just meandered the whole quilt.  
 I was disappointed to do so, as I really thought that I wanted to mix the two quilting types, but now that I see the finished and washed quilt, I don't see how I could  have liked it any better with straight-stitching ! 
Autumn came over today for a couple of hours and we played together in the floor, doing 'Ring around the Rosie', and feeding the dolly, with the dolly quilt wrapped around it, of course.  I'm thinking, now, that I'd better get busy making a dolly quilt for Autumn to take home with her too !   It'll be fun to give her the two quilts together on her birthday.................. Oh, dear, such a CHORE, having to make ALL these quilts..............................glee, glee, gleeeeeeeeeeee.
Anyway, for now, I know I'll sleep alot better tonight than I did LAST night !   Hooray !   Hooray !
Autumn's Awesome Polka Spots measures approximately 39" x 41".

  1. I was feeling so badly for you today. I know what's its like to have to undo a bunch of hard work. I am rejoicing with you that the quilt has been fixed and fixed so beautifully! It's a lovely, lovely quilt....

  2. Oh I love it! Sorry about all the quilting you had to rip out. I know that's no fun from experience. I can't get up the nerve to try anything other than stippling, as I fear the "traveling".

  3. Oh Dolly! This quilt turned out so beautifully! I was horrified when I read your previous entry talking about ripping out all that stitching (I know what that's like - LOL). I felt so badly for you having to take that on, but look at what a gorgeous quilt you made! Sometimes making a quilt is somewhat like having a baby, isn't it? You forget the pain and suffering when you see what it brought you :)

  4. Your quilt is gorgeous! Just perfect for a little girl. I love love the color combinations you used...and I certainly dont see any distortions or imperfections. Love your stippling, it looks so comfy cozy when its washed and all crinkled up like that!

  7. That is just beautiful, all crinkly and cozy. All your hard work certainly paid off. I can't decide if I like the front or the back better! Great colors too:)

  8. This is so pretty! I have to confess that although I think the front is lovely, I love the back so much more! There's just something about the randomness of it that I find so appealing. Autumn is going to love it. :-)
