I am happy to say that I finished piecing my "Diamonds in the Dirt" quilt top last night.
I KNOW !
I NEVER DO THAT ANYMORE !
I just love the way that the lighter pieces 'sparkle' throughout the quilt, especially in a low light situation !
This is not my original design........I saw something like this in a quilting catalog a couple of years ago and drafted it up the best I could. I made it in a smaller size, but changed the design some this time. I can see me doing it again, and that's saying a lot for me, because I hate to make the same design more than once.
This layout, without the sashing between the browns, has given me an idea for another setting possibility.
" 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
