" 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

Marking Time, a finished quilt

I just finished the binding on this quilt today.

It is called
                    "Marking Time"

This quilt was made for the grandson of a friend of mine.  He is currently imprisoned and can't receive the quilt, but I am praying for God's mercy in bringing about his release.

The quilt finished around 59 inches by 82 inches.

  It is backed in his favorite color, green.  I didn't have enough of one fabric, so I used a darker green to frame a lighter green, and I really like the effect.

I machine-quilted this one using my walking foot for the interior of the quilt, stitching in the ditch mostly.  Then I meander-free-motion-quilted the outer border.

Lottie-dah gives her approval.






I was inspired by this photo from a quilt in the Civil War Sewing Circle book.
