A Productive Weekend

I spent a lot of time in my happy stitchin’ space.

I made this cute little paper-pieced mug rug for a swap.

The pattern is by Janeeen of Quilt Art Designs. Here’s a link to her Craftsy Pattern Store .  She has a ton of paper-pieced patterns and a lot of them are FREE!

I also pieced the backing for  Merry Sparkle Punch. No pic of that.

And, I made a Jelly Roll Race crib quilt in primary colors. It’s a flimsy yet, but I plan to have it quilted soon.

Here’s a close up of some of the fabrics.

Not a bad weekend at all!

Thanks for stopping by.

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. – Heb 3:13 NIV

I’m Getting It Together

I’ve finally finished all the components of my Merry Sparkle Punch Christmas quilt.

They had to be laid out in my desired placement before sewing any together.

I’m very thankful this layout guide was included in the pattern.

All 480 components wouldn’t fit on my design wall. And even laying out just half the blocks required me to use an additional piece of batting along one side.

The pattern designer recommended piecing the top together in sections. I visually divided into sections of 24; 4 across x 6 down, and started taking two at a time to the machine but quickly tired of this.

I decided to number each component w/tape, which allowed me to take entire sections to the machine.

And I had the top half sewn together in no time!

And now the bottom half is laid out on the design wall and waiting to be numbered.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Thread for Life

This is my prayer in the desert

When all that’s within me feels dry

This is my prayer and my hunger in me

My God is the God who provides

I will bring praise I will bring praise

No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice I will declare

God is my victory and He is here

All of my life In every season

You are still God

I have a reason to sing

I have a reason to worship
