HQAL Progress

Good morning! It is very early on this Sabbath morning. It rained last night and it is cool. The roosters are crowing and the first patches of light are peaking through my window. It is a beautiful day.

I am reflecting on all the good in my life. I definitely focus on my family and loved ones, but I also feel gratitude for my talents. I have been able to sew a few more stitches on my Simple Folks quilt. They are so pretty:)!

The leaves and centers are really pulling everything together nicely.

I finished five blocks and have eight more to go. Then— I have four corner blocks and time to sew them all together. I’m almost, almost there! Yes, I have so much to be thankful for:)

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday as well and finding a moment to reflect on God’s wonders and blessings in your life.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

  2. Such a beautiful quilt, matching your thoughts on todays posting. There are so many layers to each block, quite like the layers of our lives. A lovely Sabbath to you and a great coming week 🙂

    1. Oh how lucky you are! Having children near is such a blessing. It’s part of life to have them leave, and I agree, it is nice to get the quality time with our spouse. Good times for sure. Thank you once again. Have a super day!!❤️❤️


  3. The moment I saw the first picture on this post, I exclaimed out loud “how beautiful”! Your quilt is so lovely and you are so close to finishing! We are not yet empty nesters, but close and the hubby and I are really enjoying time together – just the two of us. Most of mind are close by and we are still getting together for dinner once a week which is a huge blessing.
