I had to do this one in a hurry, mostly cause I had Mother's day presents to complete as well :)
So, when I decided to make this quilt to brighten what could be a dreary hospital stay, I needed something in my stash, something fast, and something cheery!
Well, I had some 6.5"x6.5" material pre-cut and waiting...for years...to be sewn into a rag quilt. This was a much more worthy project and turned out so cute.
I made a quick design and named it Window Boxes...
FNSI - still time to sign-up if you want to join the fun!
I finished up with a yellow binding.
Quilt turned out to be about 36" x 60" - a small lap size. Great for really highlighting a fabric pattern.
Adding this one to the weekend linky parties...check 'em out!
UPDATE: Also, choose this one to add to the Summer Sewing Contest for Ellison Lane. It has great Summer colors and I hope it is a great comfort to the recipient this Summer!
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that believeth on me,
the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.
On Tuesday night we went to a Revival service and this was the text. It was a great message to Christians about the GREAT works that can be done through us if we are willing to be used by God. The concept shared was that we can do GREATER works than Jesus was able to do while He was here on earth. God has used willing men of God to bring multitudes to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as our Saviour. These great revivals began in Acts with Peter and many more have since followed, some beginning with the earnest prayer of faithful ladies.........are you willing to be used? perhaps YOU could be the start of the next great revival!
