Have you ever walked into a quilt store and come across two fabrics that just had to be together in a quilt? Just two? Me neither, until I saw these.
They just spoke, “His & Hers” to me, and immediately I knew which couple I was making this quilt for AND exactly which pattern it would be.
The couple; my pastor and his wife. The pattern; Jacob’s Ladder in a Road to Arkansas layout (they are both from Arkansas). And the occasion; Pastor Appreciation, which is this month.
Here is one of the first blocks. Isn’t it just a perfect pairing?
And here’s a pic of it on the design wall.
The completed flimsy from 2 different angles.
The darker fabric reminds me of tire treads which makes it extra fitting for the “Road to Arkansas” layout.
I quilted “Flourish” from edge to edge.
I printed the label on my home printer using a handy dandy video tutorial by TheCraftyGemini. I used Steam-A-Seam to fuse the label to the back of the quilt and then I did a really awful stitch to secure it even more. LOL! I don’t think that label is going anywhere. LOL!
Pastor Appreciation is technically the 2nd Sunday in October but I couldn’t wait so I presented it to them on the 1st Sunday and it was well received.
I’ve been a member and regular attender of Relevant Church of Liberty for 2 years. Pastor Jeff is an anointed teacher and discipler. I am very grateful to be under his tutelage and part of his flock. With all the chaos, hate, and fear that is permeating our nation, I can’t even imagine living without the peace and protection of my savior Jesus Christ or the love and fellowship of my brothers and sisters in Christ.
The one good thing about Covid is that our church services are now live streamed every Sunday at 1030a CT on Facebook & YouTube, which means the message is available to those who can’t attend because of health concerns and it’s further reaching. Anyone, anywhere can watch from their phone or computer. If you don’t already attend church somewhere, or you just need to hear a word of hope, love, and encouragement, tune in. Set your hopes on God. I promise you will receive a relevant, biblical word and sound doctrine. Pastor Jeff also live streams bible study on Wednesday evenings at 7p on Facebook. Also, if there is ever anything you want/need prayer for, I will pray for or with you, just email me. There is power in prayer. Amen!
Thanks for visiting. Until next time Happy Stitchin’ and God Bless!
A Thread for Life
Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:14–15 ESV
