A New ‘Baby’ Quilt

The Prairie Queen Quilt

Part 1

This is National Quilting Day….

fabric for pink Prairie Queen quilt

…And so, in honor of this day…

I just bought fabric for a new quilt for a special little girl. The pattern is called ‘Prairie Queen’, a variation on the simple 9 patch.

She told me that her favorite color was pink, and I chose these pinks and a brown sprigged with pink blossoms for the fabric.  I have found that choosing colors of fabric to be one of the hardest parts of quilting.

I am excited to be working on a quilt again-it has been a long time for any quilting for me, due to our move, and all the work, time and chores that accompanies moving.  But I finally have an area set up for my sewing in our new house.  ( Well, mostly set up…there is still more that I would like to do!  Will be posting photos of my sewing room soon.)

I will post pictures of the advancing stages of this quilt as they get done…I am very excited to be back to quilt making again!

Happy Quilting!

And, in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day and my Irish heritage….(My maternal grandmother, Ellen Fullerton,  along with her sister, Catherine,  immigrated from County Donegal, Ireland when she was 18 years old.)

A quote attributed to St. Patrick-

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!


Spring Forward

Spring Forward

It is that time of year again…

a miserable time of adjusting to the time change!

I found this cute song, by The Choir Project.

The words are;

God of sleep, and God of slumber,

help us not be late, we ask;

Changing clocks one forward number,

may we not forget this task.

Choir directors, preachers, teachers,

all will bless your holy name,

if to Sunday church on time we come.


Don’t forget or you will be late for church!


Ephesians 5:14

Awake thou that sleepest,

and arise from the dead,

and Christ shall give thee light.




The Important Things

The Most Important Things in Life


There are only three things that

are eternal in this world….

1. God,

2. His Word, and

3. The souls of men.

Wouldn’t it make sense to invest our lives

in the Word of God and

the people of God?

Psalm 119:89

For ever, O LORD,

thy word is settled in heaven.


John 3:15

That whosoever believeth in him (Jesus)

should not perish,

but have eternal life.
