Rummaging through my 'pieces' shoeboxes last week, I came across a bunch of 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch rectangles that were leftover from a several-years-ago project.
I sewed most of them to some 2 1/2 inch green solid squares that I also found, and then started playing with them on my design wall (after drawing a possible layout on my graph pad).
Naturally, my eventual layout involved un-stitching many of the sets to change up the colors that I needed. But when I was done with the center, yesterday morning, I was left with a very traditional-looking piece.
I didn't like it.
So, here it is. It now measures 48 x 52 inches, a good size for a baby quilt or a lap quilt for a wheelchair-bound person.
But, for now, the next thing on the agenda..........coming up with a backing.
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.
