I have exactly three weeks in which to design, cut, stitch, baste, quilt and sew on a binding and a label. Years ago I found the following quote by Washington Irving. I have it hanging on my bulletin board near my sewing machine. It will bring me encouragement as I know that I have little time to create another quilt. Perhaps it will give you a special lift during a challenge!
“There is in every true woman's heart,
a spark of heavenly fire,
which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity,
but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.”
The new quilt I begin today for my partner will be stitched with as much love and thought as the first one I began. The Lemoyne star blocks have been promised to a special blogger as a token of our new friendship.
