"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." Psalm 51:


"Come, and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what He has done for me.
I cried out to Him with my mouth; His praise was on my tongue.
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the LORD woud not have listened and heard my voice in prayer.
Praise be to God, Who has not rejected my prayer or withheld His love from me!" Psalm 66:16-20

16-patch quilting has begun !

I've begun the hand-quilting on the Sixteen-Patch quilt, and I am enjoying these snatched hours of crafting pleasure.  I'm not worrying about the size of the stitches......this quilt is to ENJOY the process, and the product !

UPDATE:  Today at work, I received a "happy to help" pin, an acknowledgement of a job well done !



  1. You inspire me with things like this! You'd be proud of me today (well, maybe) I made 4 fabric no sew bookmarkers and they turned out so pretty. Maybe tomorrow I'll post a pic. sending you hugs, Maggie Ann

  2. YES, I'm proud of you ! Please share pics ! I wanna see !

  3. Hi Dolly, that quilt is gorgeous. I enjoy hand quilting too and like to have one to quilt on during the winter. I have gotten rid of my quilting frame and enjoy using a hand held hoop. That way I can quilt in the evenings watching TV and keep warm under the quilt as I work :)
    Happy quilting.
    Connie :)

  4. That quilt is really fun! I love that you are enjoying the process!! It looks so nicely pieced too! Go you!! 😊

  5. Just like any artist, there isn't work when the creation of piece is so beautiful.


Thanks for stopping by !
