a place to wonder at God's gifts - both large and small

I just finished a quilt top - and I love it. It's in different colours than I usually gravitate to, but I love how it turned out. It took a few tries to get the fabrics to all work. That's what happens when you buy 6 pieces of fabric and just admire them for a long time (as in years) before actually using them. It becomes harder to match. But the effort was worth it. Even as I was sewing the rows together, I just wasn't sure about the narrower rectangles. But once it was pressed. Wow. I'm pleased.
(The colours in the close-up are a more accurate representation. This was made with a pattern I found on the Internet - Rectangle Reverie.)
