Thoughtful Tuesdays. Wedding Quilt Finish. To Do Tuesday.

Thoughtful Tuesdays
You will love this post, "Tell Shame You Have a Savior" from Lyli at Fuel for a Wildfire Faith!  (Don't you just love that name?)  

How many times does the defeated one attack us with shame by reminding us of past failures, hurts and mistakes?  Well, Lyli has an answer to that in an easy to read post filled with verses that we can memorize and have victory over shame!  I so encourage you to visit and strengthen your faith - and "Tell Shame You Have a Savior!"  Can I get an "Amen"?


Wedding Quilt Finish
I couldn't believe I forgot to post the pictures for my sister's finished wedding quilt - the Pretzel Twist by Fons and Porter!  
I love how the sun rays are shining on it - as if God Himself is smiling.

Stephanie, my LAQ, did an amazing job!  
 She always works magic 
with my quilts!
This was a fun quilt to make - 
and the pattern was suggested by 
Stephanie herself!

It was a perfect blend of the colors my sister asked for, her style and the curvy quilting complimented the angles perfectly!  I never fail to be amazed at how beautiful Stephanie makes my quilts look!

To Do Tuesday
Last week's list
1) Press fabric for another Tumbling Blocks prototype.  Done and even cut out the fabric!

    1. Me, too! My sister requested those colors to represent her Alma Mater. Blue and yellow were my junior high and high school colors as well! Plus, I absolutely love yellow! Thank you for your kind words!
