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.

"'I'm Blushing" Quilt.......

....renamed currently, "I'm Rushing", because I just love how this quilt looks, and I just don't want to stop sewing on it !   Every coloration I see in it, I don't know, it's just so 'clean and crisp', somehow.

The blocks are just preliminarily laid out in this photo.  I did some moving around before I started sewing, but I have alot of the top of the quilt pieced.  Soon I'll have to stop and plan the flower part at the bottom left, and do some applique.   Loads of fun to look forward to !   I love it !

I found that I can't take applique orange peel blocks to the auction with me, as I am too busy paying attention to what's being bid on, and can't concentrate on my stitching.  But I hope to make enough blocks to have a companion wall piece to go with this pieced quilt that I'm making.
Dora's comment below reminds me that I did get a couple of shots of my white gladiola,......granted, it's not as detailed as the shot of the pink one, but I'll document it anyway.

I love the drops of water.  My husband has just used the hose on everything,
as the rain missed us entirely this time

  Thanks, Dora !


  1. Oh, Dolly, I'm so glad you have a quilt that makes you want to just keep sewing. I can't clearly remember the last time I felt that way about piecing one (but then, my favorite part is quilting).
    When I was in the farmer's market yesterday, they were selling gladioli for $2.50 a stem.

  2. I love the whole process, Dolly, and I know what you mean about rushing to the sewing. I said the other day, I took a break from sewing for a client, by sewing something I wanted to. Sewing is a joy and a creative outlet!Your flowers are pretty in this post and previous. My Daddy liked glads ~

  3. i really love the play of color and fabric in this quilt


Thanks for stopping by !
