Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
This August my wonderful in-laws celebrated their 5oth wedding anniversary. I think it’s remarkable to have 2 people spend THAT much time together and still genuinely like each other :) The party was this weekend, and I made a little something for the happy couple… I had lots of ideas, but what finally came to be was a quilt. This quilt has exactly 50 different fabrics included!! The pattern is a Single Irish Chain, done with 48 hand painted Batik fabrics, plus plain white for the front, and the white on white print for the back. I also added the word “love” in script along the entire border in a light pink thread. Here’s the final result…
A detail of some of the center…
That’s me :)

The whole picture :) little hands (Sean and Kathryn) with very BIG directions to please NOT drop it :)
Detail of the little script around the edges
One last detail with the back print (and my little tag) showing
Ephesians 3:17-19 I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
