Making Progress

The top is finished for the prayer quilt and will be at the LA'er by tomorrow. I am going to have it stitched in the ditch around the big blocks just for stability. Am requesting for her to write the words to Jesus Loves Me in the border. Then it will be ready for tying. The yellow thread on the blue strips really makes it pop. It is not perfect but perfect for Robin.
I am thrilled that I am learning to use the embroidery machine. I have had this Bernina Deco for over 4 years and this was the first time that I actually changed the bobbin. Maybe this machine will be more functional than I thought.
I have decided to make a pillowcase to go with this. This line of fabric is old but I knew that the LQS still had some. When I went to get it yesterday it was no longer there. How exciting it was to find it on the 50% off rack. Fortunately they had 1 yard left of the border fabric - just enough for the pillowcase. Just another blessing.....
Working on getting the back together before church this morning.
Happy Mother's Day to you all!!!!!

Prayer Quilt

I am attempting to make a prayer quilt. This is the top that I am finishing...made with April Cornell's sunshine jelly rolls. This is for a Christian friend that is in need of prayers due to her medical condition.
I am going to put inspirational scriptures in the dark blue areas of the quilt. I am finally learning to use my embroidery machine. I am amazed to find out tonight that I have numbers on the machine. Maybe this machine is not the waste of money that I have felt like it has been.
As I am praying for my friend, please pray for me that I am able to finish this project so that it may help my friend feel the peace and comfort that passes all understanding. God is good all of the time. All of the time God is good!!!!
