Thank you so much for sharing the joy of my first finished quilt...

If any man speak, let him speak
as the oracles of God;
if any man minister, let him do it
as of the ability which God giveth:
that God in all things may be glorified
through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise
and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 4:11 

I know I've shared this before...once being the post about my first quilt... but I really like that it acknowledges that God gives us our abilities and that we need to glorify Him when we are using our gifts. We can never thank God enough for what He has done for us and we also need to remember to praise Him!



  1. Thanks for popping by our blog! I love the bright colours in this one with the white!

  2. Your quilt is great! I really like how the HSTs are seperated with some sashing.
