.....quite a way back, I mean, not 2010.
The center of the quilt was all hand-pieced, one of those many-year projects that you keep in a little box and pick up and put down for 'lap work'. When it reached a size big enough for a throw, I wanted to quilt and bind it, but I stumbled across some odd borders that I had pieced years before, and miraculously, they fit it. So I added them by machine (they had been machine-pieced), and I hand-quilted it.
So, it turned out to be a favorite quilt, front AND back, and now it's truly wonderful with it's CLEAN new look.
This whole thing has me thinking about the quilt I'd like to be working on on November 11th of this year ! Think about it -- 11-11-11
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"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
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
