Busyness is going on around here! My family just finished helping the Brown clan with their first ladies tea and listening to them talk about the reforming of the church and families across America. They came to Washington D.C. as their first stop to tell about what the Lord is doing in churches and families in America. It was an encouraging event tuesday night! Do pray for them as they travel. You can read more about their road trip over here at their website the Family integrated church page.
Remember when I posted here that I was working on a new civil war star reproduction quilt, well today I basted my quilt. I have been working on this quilt for about one month now. Now it is ready to be hand quilted by myself and my sister in time for the Gettysburg 4th of July celebration living history event next month. I pray that the Lord will bless us with another quilt in time.
The top while I was basting it in our living room.
There I am in the corner finishing the last few basting stitches. I used scraps for all the stars and a brown plaid for the boarder as well as a cream reproduction pattern for the squares in between the stars. Cotten batting in the middle, as we did not want to be too hot with wool for July. We will just pile all of our wool blankets on top of the quilts come october at the Ceder Creek living history event. I am so excited to start quilting Lord willing this evening after some more reading for school and baking is done.
God is good! I am so glad to have gotten my first reproduction quilt this far along already!
Off I go to read about the american revolution.
