Rise up Lazarus...

That's the name of an old Bluegrass song. Patty Loveless sings it now. I always liked it because it wasn't a bit sad- rather happy and joyful.

I finished the quilt, as you can see. And yes, I think it did make things better- having it done. I quilted it in a random baptist fan design- no templates or patterns- just lots of little arcs- I love Laura Lee Fritz quilting. I got the binding on and everything in time for his birthday- September 30. And it is now hanging over my piano and looks very nice with the yellow walls in the living room.

""All things work for good." has become my favorite verse.

Sarah told me that they would,

but when the nights turn cold,

And the leaves turn rust and gold...

that's when your memory hurts...

I'm looking forward to leavin' October behind."

This quilt is so beautiful - inside and out. Love the sky in the picture, too.

That is a beautiful quilt - made more so by your love that was sewn into it.

Abel's quilt is stunning, Nines! Stunning. I have tears of admiration and joy for you!

The colors are my favorite! Deep rich colors...with a sparkling of turquoise. Or is it green? (Showing turquoise on my screen.)

And freehand Baptist Fans! Holy cow! ;-) You are genius!!!

Sounds like a beautiful, meditative place to hang this special quilt...above the piano.

Hugs!

Darcie said it... absolutely stunning. The star in the corner made me smile, too.

Your anniversary celebration... well, your description of any event usually has me laughing out loud, and this was no exception! Happy (belated) anniversary.

Good to have it finished I'd imagine. Now you can look at it every day and remember.
