Praise !

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? I Corinthians 3:16
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.

A Real Plus--sneak peek

Thank goodness for pieces of batting that can be pieced together......backs too !  (I'm not revealing the back until I'm all done!)

Here's an in-progress photo......the center is all quilted.   I need to figure out what I want in the rust border, and then quilt it and the little pieced outer border.  As you can see, I still feel safer with thread-basting, and I was able to move things around enough in the living room today to set up the basting frame.

I'm liking how this is quilted.  I just looked all over Flickr for plus quilts, and many of them are quilted the same, it seems........a quarter-inch in from the edge of the block, with the centers left empty.  Not to pat myself on the back, but I like this look much  better........plus, I got a REALLY GOOD upper body workout out of it at the same time !   Love that free-motion quilting .
