Jack's quilt -- "Election Sure"
"Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling, and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ."..............II Peter 1: 10-11
I finished Jack's quilt a little while ago. I started it one week ago tonight, and, as you know, he passed away one week ago tomorrow, on one of the most talked about election days of my generation. I pray that people will be as interested in being among the 'elect' that is spoken of in the Bible. I'm so glad that Jack joined THAT party !
The quilt finished at 51 X 60 1/2 inches after washing and drying. Maybe I can get a nice photo of it outside tomorrow..........this week is just beautiful, perfect Fall weather-- a last hurrah, I think !
I had a little bit of fun with the fact that Jack had been in the army, ........ I snuck in a little bit of Army girl tease in case he's checking out his quilt from afar. I gave him a Sailor girl, too, figuring a bachelor wouldn't mind......
Thanks once again to Jodie Ann........her leftovers just make my quilts POP !
......I'll have to make a point of explaining my thinking to his sister when I give HER the quilt !
This quilt got a nice, one-piece back of the blue shirting plaid that I spoke of earlier. I really like it. Once again, except for the backing and batting, this quilt was made entirely from my stash, which confusingly doesn't seem to be shrinking any, even though I'd be happy to see the LAST of most of these fabrics !
