Do you know of someone who is going through a tough time - surgery, chemo, life changes? Or how about a child who is afraid of the dark? Or maybe you need something inspirational for a prayer room wall at church. This quilt is made to comfort. The verse on it reads "When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise. In God I trust; I will not be afraid. Psalm 56: 3,4"
I used string blocks as my border. In fact, as I laid them out to photograph for my last post, I started thinking of ways to use them in a border. I ended up using a foundation strip the size and length of my borders instead of blocks. I machine quilted along each seam in the border, which gives a very nice texture.. It is quilted in swirls and pebbles around the raised circles. The backing is a soft, cream fleece.
I have worked non-stop on finishing it. My fingers are sore, but I like the results. This photo doesn't really do the texture of the quilt justice. (I will have it in pattern form within the month. If you are interested in pre-ordering it, just email me for details.)
For me, this verse is a good verse to start the new year on. I am not facing adversity right now, but what great things could I do if I did not let fear get in the way?

Such a nice looking quilt, but God's Word makes it wonderful! This is a verse I know in a children's song, and I begin teaching it to my class in October, when the spooky, scary things start showing up in their world. I love that you put it perfectly stitched on your pretty quilt. Thank you for blessing my heart today ~ReplyDelete
I really would like to buy this pattern. It's comforting and I know two people that I can give. They are both in their 90's. Not afraid but uncertain. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.ReplyDelete
