" 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

Rose block, drafted for use

Having had quite a bit of interest in the Rose pattern that I used to make the Christmas Roses table runner, I went ahead and attempted to draft it up for sharing.    I have been told that when it comes to quilting, I sometimes speak a language of my own, so if you do not understand anything about my cutting and minimal piecing instruction, feel free to let me know in a comment.  I'll try to translate what I meant.
If you want to copy the photos and can't, I will email them to you.  Just let me know.

By the way, my brother and sister-in-love DID really like the little quiltie and put it directly into use.


  1. Wow!

    I might get to this sooner, now that you've been so helpful. My Mom will like this block. Perhaps I'll come up with something for her.
    So excited!

  2. Thank you for sharing this, Dolly. I had actually tried to figure it out with graph paper. I love the puzzle part of quilting. You are so sweet to share!!

  3. Oh to be so talented! Your work is gorgeous. Hope you have a nice weekend. We had light rain and highs in the high 70's today. Felt like Spring!

  4. What a gorgeous rose runner---and thank you bunches for drafting a pattern and sharing with us. :D
