“I have given skill to all the skillful, so that they may make all that I have commanded you. “ Exodus 31:6

“O Thou who art the all pervading glory of the world, we bless Thee for the power of beauty to gladden our hearts.
We praise Thee that even the least of us may feel a thrill of the creative joy when we give form and substance to our thoughts and, beholding our handiwork, find it good and fair. “.
Walter Rauschenbusch


"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

3D PopStars ! Completed top....basted for quilting.

 I gave a peek at this project in my last post. It was made from a free pattern offered by the FatQuarterShop.  I first saw the block on a post by Pat Sloan on one of her daily videos.

 I pieced it on my old Singer 15-91, and am happy with the results.  I added an inner border of the same fabric as the shadow.  I think that it greatly improves the impact of the final pieced border.

 This is a fabric that I came across in one of Fabric.com's Friday half-price days.  It's from Stopf of France, and is 62 inche wide !  I love the size of the print, and the colors were stunning.  A bit brighter than the quilt's top, but a nice surprise when turning the quilt, I hope.

  Last Wednesday I took a day for myself, and just moved the living room furniture out of the way for an afternoon of quilt-basting.  I'm still an advocate of thread-basting, as I think it gives less opportunity for the top fabric to shift much, as opposed to pin-basting.  I have yet to try any kind of basting spray.
