In a mad rush to finish the new sample quilts for the booth this weekend, I have another variation of the AccuQuilt Flowerinf Snowball on the frame.
I am completely amazed the difference fabric choice makes in the way a quilt looks. You can search my blog for the scrappy version made recently. Doesn't even look like the same quilt. When I have them on display this weekend, I will picture them side by side.
Here is an up close of the quilting design. I love this.
We all have our special gifts that I believe come from God. There's no doubt in my mind that one of my gifts is quilting. This is the quilt I had on the frame the other day.
While at work, a lady was telling me about her daughter who is in her early 20s and suffering from chronic pain. The accident that caused this condition happen while this young lady was serving God herself. When I return home that evening I went to my quilt room and started working on this quilt just like any other day. I could not stop thinking about this young lady and her condition. I started praying for her healing and for her comfort. The more I quilted, the more I prayed and the more I realized this quilt was meant for this young lady.
God gives us all different gifts. All are very important.
I will continue to pray for this young lady. My wish is that very one could figure out their gift from God and find a way to glorify others from that.
So I took a minute to "play" with some designs on a quilt top I pieced when I first started. Oh those unfinished quilt tops we all have. :)
Firs of all, does this look like a problem?
Yep, I only had this one spool that I bought for this quilt and ran out. No biggie, I just used a solid black since I only had a few inches. No one will notice since the front and the back are both busy.
This is a design concept that I got from a picture posted by my friends Dek'kt Out Quilting (they also long arm for the public).
It is a great way to add some customized quilting with a pantograph inside. With a little more practice I think I will really like this.
