" 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

Michigan baby quilt finished !

If you remember, I made a quilt for my cousins first grandson, and another family member, attending the shower, called me to request that I make the same design for her grandson who is due in October.

I know it looks alot like the first one, but then it's supposed to !
Actually, though, this one finishes just a bit smaller.
Approximately 33 inches square.  I think the other one
must have been more like 35 inches.
The small difference in the size of the inner square
made a really big difference in the flower
pattern of the corner triangles.  I couldn't fit
quite as much of the fleur de lis stencil.
Once again, I used a cotton flannel fabric for the back,
this time in tan.
I continue to measure my bindings, just as if I were
adding another border.  This is working
much better than the old days
when I just started sewing
at one end, and lopped off the excess
at the other.


Thanks for stopping by !
