Praise !


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.

ZigZag, second day of piecing

I had a nice afternoon with Allyssia, and then got right back to work......actually, I even snuck in a little piecing while she was here, she is so sweet.  Her mama told me not to bother giving her a bath right away, as she hadn't finished her lunch yet.......she was covered in chocolate, and I was handed a ziploc baggy of pizza pockets !  I told hubby that that meant that I couldn't get any pictures when she headed straight for my dollies, babbling "babby!"   But, I couldn't resist, and snapped a few anyway..........hey, it's been a long time since I could document some good ol' PIG-MOOCHIES.   And don't think I didn't grab me some, too, Kelley !

Back to the quilt-piecing..... 
working on the diagonal like this, as I piece the squares into diagonal rows, some rows are completed before others, starting at the upper right hand corner.  So, each time a row is completed, I add it to the previous finished ones, thereby piecing the long row seams as I go.  This way, I won't have a gazillion rows to sew together at the finishing of the quilt-top.
I came across two turquoises that were SO CLOSE in hue that they may be indistinguishable in the finished top.   It may look like I made one double row of the same color through the middle of the quilt.  I'll just have to wait and see.   I didn't dare remove that near-color set of strips, as the quilt-top is already pretty limited in size. 
According to my count, I've now pieced 17 out of 27 rows.  I did 9 yesterday, so that's not bad, getting another 8 done today.   I think that it's because I've worked out a nice rhythm to my method now !
