I sewed this quilt together "before"
and Shenleigh recently finished quilting it.
I made a mistake when I joined the four stripes
and so it's quite wonky down one end.
Still it keeps us warm
even though it's wonky.
I had initially thought I would call it a foundations quilt
like the one I made for Miriam
but after the earthquake
when we were all struggling with not feeling safe
(and we still are struggling with that to be honest)
The verse in the Bible: "For I know the plans I have
for you to give you a future and a hope"
meant a lot more to me right now.
This church is right around the corner
from my house, a daily reminder of the power of the earthquake.
Some wag has written on the church noticeboard,
"God next time could you use the door please?"
By the way the fabrics for this quilt
was purchased from Sew Pretty.
I can't speak highly enough of Kristy,
she provides an excellent service.
