My First Quilt

We were talking about hexagon quilts on the PP forum last week, so I just had to go and find mine. This is my very first quilt - 13 years in the making! I started it when I was in the Girl Guides aged 11 - someone showed us how to sew together a flower, but no more. So I saved up my 'flowers' for years, making them from all the left over fabric I had. When I put the quilt together I was shocked how big it had got. I suppose I could have made two!!


Lord, You are all I desire. Just being with You changes everything in me. Longing for You makes me long to be free of anything that would draw my attention away. I draw close to You this day. Thank you that You promise to draw close to me. With You I am never alone. I love Your holiness, Lord. I love your beauty. With joy I draw water from the wells of your Salvation. Help me to make You the first place I run to when I have longings in my heart. I don't want to waste time turning to other things that will never satisfy the need I have for You. My sould waits for You, Lord.


  1. What a beautiful quilt well done especially as this was your first one so when was it finished then, one of my favourite quilts is Grandmother's garden not that i can do it but it does look lovely.
    Very nice prayer thanks for sharing it

  2. I'm most impressed with your hexagon quilt. I've already been several years making mine! You never know, maybe I'll post a picture of it completed yet!
