  1. I so enjoyed this post, Sarah! How amazing that the Lord can transform us from rags to riches, just as your mother put the quilt together in love.
    Blessings to you!

  2. I loved the post and reading it and seeing the beautiful quilt just makes me want to quilt! ahh someday…. hopefully soon.

  3. I love the quilt,so precious of your Mother to make it for you. My grandmother use to make them she made the knotted ones they were so warm. My Mom never made any quilts,so therefore I never had the opportunity to learn. I get alittle weepy when I see something someones Mom or Grandmother has made. You are so blessed!!!!
    Loved your piece!!!

  4. Woven within this is the reminder that even when something has come to the end of its use in that area, it doesn’t mean it’s come to the end of being useful — a helpful distinction to make! I so often stop at the first part of the sentence, and don’t keep looking for ways that something (here a lesson, conversation, whatever) can be used afresh. I love how God can redeem anything!!

  5. What a beautiful, beautiful post. It just blessed me today. It also makes me want to give quilting yet another try. My impatient self has such a time with the perfection quilting requires.
