A little bit of quiet quilting in a crazy, busy life.

Sew & Tell
I finished this top! I got a picture of the whole thing, but since it is a signature quilt I decided not to use it in order to protect the names of the families in our Bible group. There are lots of minors involved. I did decide to show you all a picture of a block full of verses picked out for the recipient. I will talk with his family after it is gifted about sharing more of his story.
Here you can see what the border looks like. I am planning to use white thread to stitch on the white, but have not decided what thread to use on the border. The back will be this white sheet from Target, with a few scraps of the purples from the top. I am afraid that white will be too stark on the boarder. Purple will be stark on the back. Not excited about using clear thread. Any ideas would be welcome!!
Siggy blocks and potholders are going out in the mail today! Yay!!!! Nothing more than a sneak peek until the gift is given on those potholders!! Then I will post them here, and on the flickr group.
On a final note, the giveaway deadline is 9 p.m. EST tonight! It has blessed me greatly to know that I am not alone in being a little...scattered. Today while finishing the boarder, I sewed for nearly a yard before realizing that the bobbin had run out. Good thing that so many of you have mentioned doing the same thing, I didn't feel a bit bad! If you have a moment, read down through the comments here on my giveaway post, I have been truly blessed by all you great ladies have shared. It has made a week of struggling much easier to bear. (And given me several cases of the giggles too!) I started out trying to answer all of the comments, but soon became overwhelmed. I have an old, slow computer. Please all know that you have made this a wonderful experience, and you have given more than I can give back.
