Bloggers Quilt Festival-Fall 2012

Linking up with Amy's Creative Blogger's Quilt Festival, thanks Amy for another opportunity to visit so many beautiful quilts.  I really haven't had much time for months to work on quilting, except for simple designs.  I just moved on Monday (whew), just got cable/intranet service this afternoon.  This quilt is an attempt at some modern piecing, just using one focus fabric, a favorite vintage Santa print and your basic kona white.
I used an overall pantograph quilting desing of santa face and snowflakes and quilted in white thread and used a solid red kona backing and red binding machine stitched down, this ended up to be a twin size.  I really like the quilting design, it quilted up so nice.
This is what it looked like on the machine.
At first I thought I didn't want to show a Christmas Quilt, but then when I went to get my Halloween candy last night it had all been moved to the sale area and the candy canes boxes were all lined up.  So hopefully no one minds seeing Christmas now, I think it's still early but it will be here before we know it.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a "peek". 
Hugs, Michelle

You Make a Difference-Bikes in Bloom of those from DaySpring {words, photos my own}

You Make a Difference

God is using you for His special purpose.
To Shine His light.
To Share His love.
To Shape His people.

You are making a difference in ways you don't even realize.  And you're very much appreciated.

God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all time, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8

Bikes in bloom from the summer, part of a garden show each year.

Wasn't this a fun little tour, a different kind of garden walk.  Next year, I will have a bike in the garden!
Blessings, Praise God, Michelle

Colors of the season

The last of the flowers of the season, yellows and orange!
Grew these from my own collected seed this year and just direct seeded them into the ground.

These yellow zinnia's were really nice and tall.

Yellow has always been one of my favorite colors.

These black eyed susans are so hardy.

Daylillies...tried and true.

Sure sign of later summer and early fall is the amazing Sunflower! 
Blessings, Michelle

by Grace Alone-stamped card

By Grace Alone
Do you wonder if God sees what you're walking through?
He does.  Not casualy, but in detail-with a love that will sustain and strengthen you with every step.

Search the book of the Lord and see all that He will do; not one detail will He miss.
Isaiah 34:16 TLB

God has everything you need today.
God wants to be involved in everything you do today. 
God has a purpose for everything you face today.
There is no one else as interested in everything that concerns you, as the God who loves you with all His heart.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  Philippians 4:6 NIV  This is the link for dayspring, this is one place that I get signed up for to get emails sent and the above is taken from one of those, I find them enoucraging.

I stumbled upon this card design and fell in love with it, I've made about 25 of them up to send out, they are so much fun to do.

Have a wonderful Lord's day, blessings, Michelle

Fall Quilted Pillows
Linking up with Courtney-Feather your nest

Fall, a wonderful season to sew!  I have five different fabrics I've used to make some quilted pillows up, they take a 16" pillow form .  I love to change my decor for each season, pillow decorating is one of them.

There are so many fantastic fabrics to choose from, it's hard to limit myself, anyone else have that problem.
Hugs, Michelle
