Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Keeping up with things so far......

I cleaned the lint out of my bobbin area, as
 suggested in the needed it!
......I got my back pieced,
and I got my quilt basted. 
After my fiasco with the polkadot quilt, I have trust issues, when it comes to basting.  More is never enough !
So I ran out of pins just pinning the quilt, and now I am supposed to baste a practice piece, too.  I may just thread-baste it.

Remember, if you follow me during this quiltalong, do as SHE says, not as I DO ! 
I'm a terrible student.

Also, I rewashed the Feathered Star/procrastination quilt, and am satisfied with it.  I'm it's mama, and know it's history, and I can live with it's imperfections.  What I WOULD like to point out though is the PERFECTION of the quilting design in the four corners of the quilt's center.   My best gal-pal, Wanda, designed these feathers to perfectly fit this area, way back in probably 1988 or 89.  They're just a perfect complement to the quilt, don't you think.

Thanks, Wanda Gayle !
EDIT:  I also got my practice piece basted, AND a small wall-hanging top that's been hanging around for atleast 15 years if not 20.
