.....I am so bad about posting here !
I finished the new quilt top on Wednesday, I think. It's really big for a couch quilt, but that seems to be the way I make them lately. I guess it comes from my napping on the couch......I'm pretty tall, and I hate it when a nap quilt won't cover my feet while letting me snuggle it against my cheek. So I try to keep THAT in mind when I make them for other people.
Anyway, the big piece of fabric from last weekend's "score" worked out perfectly for the border.
I call this one, "Marking Time", and it measures around 60 by 80 inches. I haven't chosen backing fabric yet, as I expect that I won't get a chance to baste it until the weather opens up again in the Spring and I can do it outside.
But I went back to the second-hand store this weekend and made my second score ! I had messaged the lady who runs the store, and asked her to look and see if she could locate a copy of Electric Quilt among the sewing supplies she had. While I was perusing the aisles this Friday, I looked over, and there sat EQ4 on a shelf that I had already passed once.
I asked her if she had put it out for me, and she said that, no, she hadn't had any luck finding what I wanted. Well, I don't believe in luck.......I KNOW that God blessed me by putting that right there where I HAD to see it myself ! She let me have it for $4.00, and I loaded it onto my computer when I got home. I know it's not the latest version, but IT IS the version that I had before, so I am perfectly comfortable in knowing how to use it ! SCORE again, praise the LORD !
" 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
