Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Jesus said,
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

I'm On a Roll !

And.........I'm dead tired !    

I've been sewing since 9 a.m.

But....I finished my x and plus quilt top.......except maybe for a border to make it a bit bigger.  BUT THE MAJOR PIECING IS DONE !

I made 26 blocks many months ago, and couldn't decide on whether to make it the usual way .......

 or sash it to gain some size.  
 The only fabric that I had enough of for one-color sashing was a bright lime green.
 I wasn't happy with either option, so I put the blocks away, but not so far that I didn't run across them every time I tried to start something else.

Looking at them yesterday, I noticed that I had a LOT of extra 2 1/2 inch squares and 2 x 6 rectangles.  Playing around with the blocks, I realized that I could make sashing from the extra pieces instead.  This way ......

 .......I have plusses EVERYWHERE ! 

             X's...not so obvious,........but they're there.

 I like it this way......from a distance.  And, yes, I added the cross on purpose.)
 Up close, it's just bright CHAOS ! I think I have finally gotten over my obsession with bright quilts.  

More and more I'm craving a softly colored, quiet quilt.  That will take SOME shopping, as you won't find THAT in my current stash.
