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.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
