I'm pretty much halfway finished on the commission I'm working on........the embroidered quilt top's sashing/stars ! It is a TEDIOUS undertaking, but done in increments, it is manageable.
I am doing the stitch and flip method for making the triangles at the end of each yellow sash, stitching diagonally across 1 1/2 inch squares on each corner and then flipping and trimming. I sew enough sashes for one row at a time, including the sashing strip that joins rows as well as the sashes that join the blocks.
There is A LOT of pinning involved, but I am pleased with the appearance thus far.
This morning I took a bit of a break to make a diaper-changing pad for a sister in Christ.
This is the quilt I made for her last year,
Working on the project gave me the perfect opportunity to pray for her during her scheduled C-section.
I can hardly wait to hear more details about the baby and her arrival, but we, her friends, are celebrating Krista's victory, and praising God for his faithfulness.
" 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
