Warmth of a Quilt

Our Daily Bread Designs, ODBDSLC213, Quilts, Pincushion Single, Spool & Tape, CherylQuilts, Designed by Cheryl Scrivens

This is Week Two of our Shining the Light In Stitches Challenge. We'd love to see your designs using stitch themes (real or faux stitching), quilt layouts, stitched images or sentiments. Be creative.

Using an image from Quilts, I colored my quilt in blue, red, and green. When making a quilt, you need special tools. So I fussy cut and added the Spool & Tape and the Pincushion layered over the bottom of the quilt after I used a stylus to give the pincushion dimension. And I love this sentiment. The background is embossed, sponged, and matted - and of course, paper-pierced. By now, you must know I love to pierce! 

Back in the days when early pioneers traveled west, women made quilts out of necessity using fabric from worn clothes and blankets. Women would gather to make quilts, and it was essential for socializing as well as for making quilts for new brides and new moms. I especially thank God for the wonderful friends He has given me to love me, pray for me, and encourage me to be a woman who fears God and desires to praise Him in all that I do. And my precious friends do not lose their warmth as we age together!

For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.
To Him be glory forever. Amen.
Romans 11:36

Cheryl this is soooo pretty! Love the gingham bg and your beautiful coloring, and the use of the pin cushion is the perfect compliment!!! Love reading your thoughts each week and YOU dear friend are such a blessing to me! I agree that in days gone by women getting together to quilt (as well as to put up the produce of their gardens, etc.) was a great socializing time and one we miss out on today! So thankful for the connections we do have with godly women who bless us so! I count you as one of my great blessings!
