"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

"Tracking East"

This is my latest quilt-top.  I got the idea from a quilt that I saw on Moda's Bake Shop, I think.  I'm not sure because I see these things that I want to make, but that I do not need a pattern to figure out,  and I save the photo, but not always the details.

 I did not make it to sell, though that COULD happen eventually as I have so many quilts at this point.  Their quilt was titled, "Jane's Ladder".  I have just found it here, offered as a free pdf pattern, so if you like it, go wild !

I pulled all of the limey/medium greens that I could find, and eventually had to throw in a few that weren't exactly what I wanted, but that worked anyway.  For the other 4 colorways, I used mostly "good neighbor" prints from Connecting Threads, plus other fabrics that I thought would continue the look.  The background fabric is a text fabric, also from Connecting Threads.

They are 8-inch finished blocks, set 7 blocks by 9 blocks, so it currently measures approximately 56 inches by 72 inches.  I have no plans for adding borders, as this is my favorite size to make currently.....a large nap quilt/twin bed topper.

It was a pleasant way to pass the hours while it is so very hot outside.  I DO miss working at Walmart, but don't miss being constantly worn out, and worrying about what I was going to fix to take for dinners and eat at home, too.  And now I'm told that they're phasing out all part-time positions, so it appears that the LORD gave me just what I needed, WHEN I needed it, and now that time has passed !   Praise God in His ultimate wisdom !
My daughter and her family got moved to Tennessee (restationed with the army), and I had my first experience with driving up to see them.  I don't think I'll be doing that VERY MUCH, but it's so good to know they're so much closer to me now !
