    4000 pieces later......

    This is a quilt that i'm making for a friend of mine. It was inspired by a quilt Indigo Stars by Fons & Porter....Thanks to my students who climbed up on the tables to hold it for me this morning! It's king size and will be hand-quilted. Estimated time of completion is 4th of July.....

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    When you look up close it looks so simple but when you get the whole view it's so detailed. It's so beautiful!!! Great job!
