" 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

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 !
