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.

Little Orange Peel........

......finished !

Here are a couple of shots I managed to get today.

The little quiltie finished at 27 1/2 inches square.  I backed it with the same polka-dots that I used on the Blushing Bloomers quilt.  These are the same fabrics that were used in the top of that quilt, also.......I cut out 5 inch squares at the same time that I cut the other quilt pieces.  I then drew the peel shape onto the squares, placed one over a light-colored 5-inch square,

 and machine-zigzagged over the drawn line.  At that point, I trimmed the top, colored fabric right up against the machine-stitching.

Because I had leftover triangles from making the border on the other quilt, I started stitching those triangles together today, based on an idea I got from Wanda of Exuberant Color.   I love the idea , but it's all I can do not to stitch them together into bigger pieced squares !   I need to MAKE myself put them away so that I can add to them, but I trimmed them down to 2 inches square, and I don't know if I'd EVER make enough of that size to make something substantial.  It would really be neat-looking if I could stick with it though.

Here are some of the ones from today.
