The Hawaii quilt

I have just started the Hawaii lap quilt. It will be staying in Hawaii as a gift. This is the first block. When put together with other blocks it will look like waves. The colours match the decor of the place we will be staying.

God is good!

No matter what life brings, I know God is there for me. My faith has grown in the past 6 months and I am so thankful. Technology has played a role believe it or not! My iPad has a bible app called You Version. It has daily readings and different versions of the bible. I read much more than I ever have in my 29 years of being a born again believer. Even Instagram has a page called instapray with great little pictures with bible verses or sayings as seen below. I pray that my family will find God so faithful too. What a blessing these past few months have been.

Prayer quilts and 2 colours of thread!

Yesterday I tried 2 colour long arm quilting on a prayer quilt. It worked! I had blue on the top and yellow on the bottom. Last time it didn't work properly since I was even more of a newbie back then. I am working out finding the sweet spot tension for my machine depending on batting, fabric etc. I am pleased with the results.
I did 2 prayer quilts different back different pantograph.
