PRAISE HIS NAME - FATHER I GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY!
Okay, now for the quilt. As you know, I am participating in the Downy Quilts for Kids Challenge. I have had so much fun puthing this adorable quilt together.
My precious friend, Daisy is participating in the challenge as well, so she came over and we spent the day sewing. Well, not just sewing as we can ALWAYS find something to do. We did, however, complete the quilt tops in just a couple of hours. Hers took about 2 hours and mine took about 4 since I was doing laundry and and some other things at the same time, and my little mistake (keep reading)! As you can see, our quilts were almost exactly the same. The only difference between them was the color of the solid squares; hers were green and mine were yellow
I borrowed my sister's machine because mine needs to be cleaned. I didn't realize her presser foot was LARGER than mine, so when I thought I was sewing a 1/4 inch seam, I was actually sewing a 1/2 inch seam. I didn't realize it until AFTER, when I tried to line the squares up! I am such a knucklehead! lol After a little "resizing" of my solid squres, we were good to go again. The only difference in our quilts when we were finished, was that mine was just a wee bit smaller! :> )
Here is my finished quilt top, along with the fabric for the backing. Since this picture was taken, I have completed the back, and I am now just finishing up the quilting part to give it more stability and then I am finished. I showed the information to our Women's Ministry Leader and I am so excited that she has taken an interest in this challenge as well. We are going to see how many ladies are interested, order the kits, and make a day of it.
I CAN'T WAIT!!!
