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.
" 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
