Thought for Friday....


"...faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Hebrews 11:1


This is a quilt made by my maternal grandmother, who sparked my interest in quilting. My mom calls it the "Coat of Many Colors" quilt. I love it! Is so bright and cheery and it makes me smile! I sometimes put it on my kitchen table just so I can see all of it at once.

Today, I want to be bright and cheery and hopeful, so I think I'll put out Grandma's quilt, smile, open my heart a little more and offer a quick prayer for hope. May you have a blessed day too!

I'm sort of amazed that you HAVE a kitchen table - NYC and all...
It does look like an amazing quilt!

That is a gorgeous quilt. The last time I worked on a quilt was in a YW quilting bee when I was a young woman. It was a tied quilt, and that's all I remember.

Hi Andrea! I'm so glad you found your way over to my place...so that I could find my way to you! I dream of making a quilt to lay down on a table like that. Your grandmother's quilt is lovely and would make me bright and cheery, too!
