Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

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.

 I've finished piecing my first little quilt top of the year. 

I'm not happy.  The size is more useful, I suppose, but I liked it better last night, when it had no borders. 

But when I told hubby, last night, that, no, it wasn't going to be any bigger, he LAUGHED. 
Now, I SHOULD  be stronger-willed than to have changed it, but I guess this proves that I'm not.........YET.  Borders are removable, aren't they?  I mean, it's not like he probably thinks that THIS is a usable size either ! 

I just wanted to see the little plus quilt in front of my eyes......it pleased me.   What still pleases me is the fact that this little top is made up primarily from three gifts sent to me from Jodie Ann.....a Moda scrapbag of strips, fabrics for my birthday, and fabrics for my Christmas present. 

This is the center portion of my quilt.


And this is the workup I did before with EQ5.  I wanted to compare the two.
Thank you, Jodie.......this fabric is totally out of the color families I play in right now, but made a gorgeous quilt.  This was fun and a great way to start the new year.
