Ta-Done! NOT

Remember this quilt?

I made it last March for my oldest son's coach.

It wasn't the fabric that I originally had planned for the design.  I was hoping to use Reunion by Sweetwater, but I couldn't find it.

Then I went on a Anniversary walk-a-bout with my beloved and scored some.  It has been sitting in a plastic bag in a box since then.

I finished the top last week and quilted it on Sunday.

The quilting pattern is "Wild Mouse" by Anne Bright
Last night I finished adding the binding.

I think I love it....but not as much as these guys.....
Ben (14), John (16 1/2), Noah (20)  They are standing on a sloap so they look close in heigh...check out the fence behind them to judge their reall height.
they are all back in school now.  I am just a very much jealous of the adventure that is ahead of them.  I hate sitting at home and waving good bye as they head out the door.  So, I keep reminding myself that God isn't finished with me yet.
"I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion...." Phil 1:6
"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."  Jer 29:11
"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.  My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.  And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them."  Ps 139:14-16
When did I get so thick headed that it is hard to remember these things....

The quilt is brilliant and I am pretty sure there is lots more brilliance to come from you. As well as adventures and more in life. Enjoy each day.
