In the Meantime…

Its been a month since the Juki stopped working, and two weeks since I shipped it to get a new motor. I finished ALL the embroidery on the Hallelujah quilt, so it is waiting patiently for the Juki to return so it can be quilted. In the meantime, I have kept busy with other small projects.

I finally made myself sit down and work on one of the blocks for the Genesis quilt. For some reason, even though I had in mind doing primitive figures for this quilt, I was still intimidated to start. But once I started, it was fun. At first I was only going to put birds and fish on this block, but then I read the verse again, and realized I had to include an octopus and a crab to represent the things that scurry.

Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.

I’ll be back with a couple of other posts showing the small colorful projects that have been keeping me busy.

  1. Debby…I love this creative little quilt. I especially like the fat little pelican. Your mind must ALWAYS be racing (smile). I have been searching for this verse in Genesis……where can I find it?

    • Thanks Mickie! This is just one of 12 big blocks I am making for my Genesis quilt! Got a feeling this is going to be a long process. The verses are Genesis 1:20-21.

  2. The whale spouting water is killing me – you think of all the little details when you embellish your quilts, and I just love having them slowly pop out at me…such a treat for the eyes!
