" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Something quilty.........finally !

My camera was not working during the months that I didn't have internet access, but I did get a couple of quilt-tops pieced for my friend, JoAnn.

The first one was this red and white Ohio Star top.  As you can see, I worked the border in by adding pieced blocks of a different design.  I drafted these up in EQ4 today since I have no photographs, and I'm not sure how many blocks wide/long I made it, but as I recall, the top finished around 81 x 99 inches.

The second one was a blue and white quilt based on a block called the Lawyer's block.  Yes, it is another use of the traditional Delectable Mountains block, putting four together to make the Lawyer's block.  I went another step farther and put FOUR of those blocks together, 9 times, with a wide sashing and border.  This one finished around 88 x 88 inches.
