I had the privilege of machine quilting this special quilt for a customer who lovingly stitched it for her pastor who is going through cancer treatment.
She purchased the quilt pattern and Scripture motifs from the Log Cabin Quilt Shop in Bird in Hand.
Since the Scripture blocks needed to be the main focus, I did a simple stipple in the body of the quilt.
Then, I did some squiggles (need a name for this design!) in the inner border, and piano keys in the outer border. (I find if I practice on my white board first, it saves me from having to practice on a quilt sandwich, eliminating waste.)
I'm thinking I need to do a similar quilt for myself! I had purchased a quilt kit to console myself during my cancer journey 8 years ago, but never got around to stitching the quilt. These Scripture blocks would be perfect for incorporating into that quilt, as they remind me of all the time I spent dialoguing with the Lord re: my bewilderment....
Below are closeups of each Scripture block before they were quilted:
Trusting that this quilt will bring comfort and healing!
