Praise !


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
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Finished all 63 string blocks

I put a rush on the final blocks, because my daughter and family are coming over the weekend, and I need the sewing space for sleeping. 

No photo yet, I'm still in the process of removing the papers from the back side now that the entire thing is pieced.  I even stay-stitched around the perimeter so that I can add borders without stretching out the bias edges of these blocks.

No one told me what a labor it is to maneuver the top through the machine as you're sewing the last of the long seams with all that  paper still attached.  I'm kind of enjoying removing it, though.

It now measures approximately 63 inches by 81 inches, so I'll probably try to bring it up to atleast full-size, 72 .x 90.


  1. Awesome that you are getting a visit! Looking forward to seeing the quilt!

    1. Congratulations on winning the EQ7 ! I tried to comment on your blog, but it wouldn't open for me. But atleast I get your blog posts in email form !

  2. Dolly, I love your header picture! Really....what a piece of beauty. =) I always enjoy your flower or quilt pictures. Blogger cut me off from having header pictures....said I needed to buy space from them so I just have the verse. ..... It sounds like you are busy. Our daughter and grandsons are coming in August. Can't wait but hate how fast the visit will be over. Oh dear, that sounds a bit pessimistic. I mispelled that didn't I. Hope you have a great day friend!


Thanks for stopping by !
