" 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

I finished the applique

I left the 'blushing' quilt top in three sections to do the applique, for ease of handling.  Parts of flowers or leaves that covered a joining seam were left unfinished until that seam could be sewn.  All of the applique is now done, and the three sections are joined.
I know it's not a great photo, but it's the best I could do
at this time of evening.  Maybe when it's bordered,
I can hang it on the clothesline during the daytime for
another shot.

I thought that meant that the quilt top was finished, but
#1.  The design included a white 2 inch strip across the bottom and down both sides, in addition to the one I already have pieced across the top.
#2.  After laying the top out on my bed, I realize that it would do nicely to have a 3 or 4 inch final border around it, especially since I know that quilting will cause it to come out just a little bit smaller than it is now.

I'll probably choose some sort of pretty green as a final border.   I really like this quilt.   Hubby likes it too.


  1. That makes three of us, because I really like it too!

  2. It is a sweet quilt! It will be happy with borders, is it just that you want to be finished?

    1. Oh,yes, yes, YES ! I want this one basted, quilted, bound and CRINKLY ! These cooler nights have me ready for a new snuggly quilt to sleep under !


Thanks for stopping by !
