It is impossible to be negative when we are giving thanks...

Today I attended and spoke at a Women's Gathering in Madison, MN.  The theme was "Piece by Peace".    A perfect topic for quilters but more importantly a perfect topic for the world we live are living in today.  The devotional reading was describing our lives like a jig saw puzzle.  It started out asking us a question - "How long has it been since you've pulled out a jig saw puzzle?"  Some could quickly answer that it was just yesterday, for others it may have been years.  I strongly encourage you to search for Anna Currin "A Piece to Our Puzzle".  It relates our lives as puzzle pieces and how we are given one piece at a time and those pieces are given in His timing.  Sometimes it is difficult to understand how all the pieces will fit together but God sees the entire puzzle and puts them together to make something incredible!!  

In these trying times, we need to remember to TRUST in the Lord and Give Thanks for the many blessings that we have received!!

KEEP THE FAITH!!!  HAPPY SEWING!!!!!!

We are SO excited that our "Rays of Hope" Is one of the projects in the December issue of American Patchwork Quilting.  One of our old antique quilts was the inspiration behind the quilt design and can also be seen in the magazine.  We used Jen Kingwell's line "Fine and Sunny" to create a easy to piece together Dresden plate.  This grouping of fabric works very well to give you a "pieced look" by just using the fabric yardage and fussy cutting it.
Quilt finished size is approximately 48 x 48 inches.
