Well, 2 days, really.
I got it quilted with a cute back, using the inside-out construction method to avoid binding. I machine-quilted it simply with the walking foot which behaved FAIRLY well.
'beehive' type of hat for one of the grandsons..........who gets it will be decided by how big it comes out !
I really wanted to get atleast one more 'something or other' basted today, for machine-quilting times, but the day got away from me.
Jessica that I would show her a picture of it, so it's in my header too. It reminds me, a bit, of the value quilts that are being made from half-square triangles all over the 'net.
So, it looks like I now have some ready-handwork, and can be figuring out my next piecing project !
" 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
