.....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 !
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.
