2 blocks quilted and a few to go!
If anyone interested in making this with me, I will make a tutorial with the next one. Just an idea....
I am reminded of why I enjoy sewing with Kaffe Fassett fabrics as I hand quilt for the finishing touches.
I have been distracted with the desire to finish the quilt and gift to a special someone who inspires all that read this post. SO.........may the following quote from "Rain of Gold" inspire you...to leave a comment. I will close the giveaway when the quilt is pieced and I have finished the hand quilting, going quicker then I thought because it is so fun!
Leave as many comments as you would like and may the piece be chosen for you! I hope the following quote is an inspiration to you and cause for CELEBRATION! ENJOY!!!
"...the more I live and see, I'm beginning to think that the most important things in life seem to come to us like, well, in a gift, a vision, a special knowledge so deep inside us that we actually know things before we even know them.....I can tell you, now that I've rested here with my great friend, this mighty oak tree......Here take a good look at my crying tree, and see her mighty limbs, her great trunk, and where her limbs have been broken by fire and lightning, but how she's mended herself. Imagine, all that this tree has been through. Look at her broken places and see the tender new growth that she's sprouted. Look at the great burn that reached the heart of her trunk and yet she withstood that great fire of the meteorite that burned down all the big pines. As sure as this tree lives, so does my heart.....This is my crying tree and ever since we came to this canyon, I've been coming up here when I feel sad or lonely or just too tired to go on. This tree listens to me, giving me strength, breathing new hope and power into my....my very soul.....keeping our faith in God."
