New Life

This summer Sacred Threads hosted their biennial quilt exhibition as well as a special Liturgical Exhibition.  I entered New Life in the Liturgical exhibit and was so pleased when Floris United Methodist Church (the host venue) contacted me about purchasing the quilt for their church.

In the detail shots below you can see how the quilting lines create movement.  In the case of the leaves, the lines follow the veins realistically.

 Within the background I repeated (in quilting) the scroll shapes from the fabric in the border.

Spring is my favorite time of year when all the trees and bushes start budding out and the bulbs bloom.  Crocuses have been in bloom here for about a week. In time my back yard will be filled with dozens of  my favorite yellow daffodils.  
Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  This photo of me and my sisters is a favorite all decked out in our Easter finery.
I gratefully celebrate the events of Holy Week. Jesus Christ is the foundation of my hope, peace, confidence (I could go on.)  I've included the words to my favorite song.  

Wishing you a wonderful Easter and spring and all your favorite things. 

In Christ Alone
 and Music by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev'ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.
