Houses & Baby Quilt

I was so excited this week, I received my houses from a swap I was in. Thanks go to "Humble Quilter" for collecting the blocks and sending them out to us. I love them and look forward to putting them into a quilt. Ladies, I love them all!


This weekend I finished quilting another quilt for our Quilting Ministry at church. I love the colors in this one and Sharon did a wonderful job of embroidering the blocks and putting this darling quilt together. It is going to the new daughter of our Children's Minister. We were able to get colors to match her room, how cool is that! Here is a view of the whole quilt.

Next is a view of the verse on the top of the quilt...

And a view of the verse at the bottom of the quilt..



The words are stitched with varigated thread and look wonderful in person. Sharon did a great job with it. I love these bible story quilts. What a wonderful way to learn about the bible through the pictures of the stories on the quilt.
