Philippians 1:27b – 28 Part 1. Sewing News: Setting Up A Quilty 365 Center
Philippians 1:27b – 28
As we discussed previouslyhere andherePaul is asking for a united front in verse 1:27. To be sure there are disputes over details in
the Philippine church, but overall, they can agree on the Gospel of
Christ. As previously discussed, this point is so vital, that
Paul mentions it three times in verse 27b!
After discussing “striving
together as one for the Gospel”, he tells them they can achieve this without
being frightened in any way by those
who oppose them.
This reminds me
of the saying, “There is power in numbers.”
I also recall how
my love for my sister-in-law grew tremendously as I nursed her through breast
cancer – twice.
Yup, she's my hero!
And then how she
flew from the east coast to New Mexico during her own chemotherapy treatment to
go with me to my own first chemotherapy treatment.
Now, like all
we love each
we can definitely
drive each other nuts! J
telling my kiddos, “I can complain about her, but not you!”
but it made so
much sense to me!
Oh, and my
He would just
sister-in-law and I encouraged each other
And we did.
That’s the power
to be fearless
in the face
of our enemy.
You know how I
hate hypocrisy and “fronts”! Therefore,
this set of verses really had me struggling to make peace with and write about
because that is exactly what I felt Paul was asking the Philippians to do!
thank you for helping me as I grappled with these verses over the last
week! Now I understand why You’ve been
calling me all morning to study and read, and
I now understand
“united front” on a deeper level – and I appreciate it.
Thank you, Abba Father!
How I Set Up My
Quilty 365 Center
I must mention that I use this tutorial to
make this quilt. In short, I cut out
circles of fabric and light interfacing, sew them right sides together, cut the interfacing, turn them inside out and iron them to my
background fabric. But seriously, check out her link. :)
helped me run my light interfacing through the Accuquilt to make a mountain of 5”
circles – which quickly turned into a little mountain! J
2)Then I spent an
afternoon cutting out a 5” strip from each “bolt” of my fabric. Using my I Accuquilt made short work of
creating the 5” circles.
3)Next, I sew the
circles onto the interfacing to the circles and pin them to the squares.
I will press them and blanket stitch them on.
I’m using a mix of hand sewing and machine sewing. I had started out using embroidery floss, but
then I read that was not the best idea. That
saddens me as it looks so very pretty!
5)I store them all in
this pretty handmade basket.
6)At times, I follow
the mood blanket mode and pick a color that reflects my mood using this chart. At times I pick a fabric that reminds me of
that day. It’s all very loosey
