" 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

Star finished

I finally got a couple of pictures resized.  This is the finished star quiltie.
The color is a little more orange-looking here than is true.

It's dimensions are 22 1/2 inches in width and height.   I machine-quilted it with the new walking foot, and had a slow time keeping the stitches in the ditch where I wanted.  I hope to purchase a guide to go with the next foot that I buy, for doing echo-quilting like I did all around the star points here.
I pieced a back using stripes cut from a fat quarte gifted to me by JodieAnn, and some blue fabric from Fabric.com.  This quiltie now hangs in  my kitchen/dining room, and I moved my little Orange Peel to my living room wall.
