Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Some Blocks Just Need...

To be stitched by hand!



My quilt guild makes a raffle quilt every year...this is one of the two blocks I made for the next quilt. It has lots of diamonds which means lots of bias edges. I knew hand piecing was the only way to go with this one, and I'm so glad I did.

This is a picture of the pattern we're using. Isn't it gorgeous?

Your blocks are beautiful in their perfection. I actually like hand sewing. It takes longer but I feel more connected to my work. Blissful Stitching...

Beautiful quilt! Sometimes it is fun (and necessary) to hand piece. It always seems to be worth the effort - yours is gorgeous! I wonder if the quilting on that quilt was hand quilted?!?! ~Jeanne

Well done. I like the curved stems in this pattern version. Years ago, I won a quilt made with a version of this block.

I taught that quilt many years ago at the local quilt shop. It was so much fun and I loved seeing how everyone's turned out. Such a beautiful block.
