Newest off the machine

Wow, the year has just began and I find myself looking back over last year and wondering "what did you do?"  Seems that the older we get the faster the years fly by.  I started off this year with a quilt from some wonderful women from Alliance....I was honored when they asked me to quilt the top they worked so hard on....

Corner....the ribbon border is amazing

I loved this quilt when I first saw it and while I was quilting fell in love with it even more....I added some soft clematis flowers with swirls to soften all the hard points of the friendship stars....I really enjoyed quilting this quilt and really like the final product.  Can't wait to see it when it is bound and ready to go...  This group did a great job!

Happy New Year!!!

When I was much younger I would have NEVER thought about living in the year 2013...wow, here we are and I am loving life!!!  My quilting has become a part of my creative life...I truly love what I do!
This last year there has been some struggles, but have survived and come out the other side a much stronger woman....It has been a life lesson for me to realize that we are not in control ...God is and if we allow Him to guide our heart, life goes much better.  As soon as I start to try to control, look out!!!
My pray for all my followers is that you find the Joy that God has given you and that you see the beauty in each day....find the blessings in everything, even the pain!
With that I am wishing you a Happy New Year and Blessed 2013!!!
