Joy to the World

The Bible quilt is done.....


I had planned to bring it outside and take photos but I was delayed getting home today and it was too dark. Here's the top half....
And the bottom half. I did some simple meandering quilting. I kept it primitive to go along with the wool applique. I had to remake the label and will get it sewn on tonight and packaged and sent off in the next day or two. Woo-hoo!!

I wish I could say I made this, but I didn't. I purchased it  online from LJ Fibers at www.woolyredrug.com. I kept one and the other is winging its way to our friends in Denmark.
Here is another adorable hand made item I bought online for my daughter. It has a pin on the back so it can go on a hat, a blouse, a dress or a purse. I purchased it from Lana at http://honeysucklelane.com/

If you have a favorite site that you like to browse or purchase or maybe a favorite Etsy seller please leave the url in the comments as I would love to check them out.

  2. Your Bible quilt is a beautiful heirloom to be enjoyed for generations to come. The wool heart reminds me of the folded hearts we would make at valentines, looks cute in wool.

  22. Who gets the quilt? It turned out really, really well! What will the label be like? I love woven hearts - I make them for Valentine's in red and white (of course!) but may just have to make some in red and green.

  35. Hi Lori, I'm sure behind on looking and commenting!! Love the Bible quilt!! Such fine work. The little finds are adorable. I in particular love the little wool flower pin!!

    Quick question - remember when I first started blogging and you told me how to not be a anonymous commenter? Well I can't remember what you told me, and need to tell someone how to fix it!! So if you could pass on the info I would greatly appreciate it!!

    A Blessed Christmas to you and all your family.
