Okay, so here's my most recent finished quilt to share with you:
|"Math Is Beautiful," 51" x 51", Teacher Gift Based On My Son's Design|
|My Son Holding Up the Quilt He Designed While Doodling In Math Class|
After finishing Math Is Beautiful, I discovered Tula Pink's Tabby Mountain quilt pattern showcasing her Tabby Road fabric collection for Free Spirit Fabrics, and I thought it would be a great "quick and easy" project to whip up for more quilting practice on my longarm machine. Ah, but NOTHING I do is every quick OR easy!

-- BUT-- even though Christ's last words were "it is finished," the story does not end with death on a cross. The trumpets and hallelujahs are coming on Easter Sunday; we just have to be patient and wait three more days. And you know what? My Tabby Mountain quilt is coming along really nicely and I'm learning SO much. I just need a little more time with it. Maybe not three whole days, but at least one more day! I'm publishing this post at the stroke of midnight EST on Thursday evening/Friday morning, and I know I'll have several hours of quilting time during the day

You know, singing in several different choirs at multiple church services and shuttling my kids back and forth to their youth events definitely eats up a lot of my time every week, but it feeds my soul, reminds me again and again of what really matters versus what is trivial, and I walk out of worship feeling restored, renewed, forgiven and redeemed -- and ready to take on the world! To all of you who are celebrating Easter with me this weekend, to those of you who will be celebrating Passover seder this Saturday, and to those of other faiths whose holidays fall on other dates, may we all feel the power of God's love, mercy, and redemption in our lives not just on holy days, but for all of our days (especially the days of disappointment, failure and despair).
And now, without further ado, it's YOUR turn! What have YOU finished -- or partially finished -- this week?
