In the quiet of the desert......

Friends, It was a wonderFULL afternoon yesterday. Noah began school and I began to work at the office once again. I felt a sort of "coming home" as I perused favorite "go-to" blogs and those of new neighbors.....I skipped from corner to corner and then arrived home (literally my home) to combine the inspirations into my Psalm 40:3 quilt.........

To return to LIBERATED blocks in my sky, collage of desert terrain
and "chat" with Sandra the Cumberland Chick as I pieced the heavens....


This project is one that I hope conveys a quiet comfort from Mary as she blends with the sky and is noticed/ or simply feels her comfort by the onlooker who is looking for her....
As I continue to peek at it on the table I wonder what color to do a liberated border....I am think browns but also wonder about a pop! factor. Thoughts? And how about Unruly lettering in the border, Yea or Nay? So much to consider....


Off to play in the wilderness and will be fun envisioning this piece waiting for me to arrive home tonight and arm myself with glue sticks and Roxy panting in the background excited to decorate! And of course.....find a tiny bell for the bell tower.
Love, Em

You are such a talented and inspirational quilter. It amazes me how quickly you finish your quilts. I guess my problem is I work on too many projects at one time and nothing gets finished. At least it keeps me out of trouble. lol Hugs

I'm thinking, as it is a desert quilt, what about some orange & gold & browns in the border? Maybe not the bright bright orange, but a tiny bit muted? I really like Mary in the Sky! :D

I love the way this piece is coming together...I can feel the quiet of a desert place when I look at it.
Em, you are so talented!

This is gorgeous. I hear what you are saying about Mary.

I'd go for a plain border, but not brown.

Wow. Another stunner.
My thoughts are a subtle border, so Mary continues to be the focus.
But whatever you decide will be perfect. It always is.
Love, Deborah
