"For in Him we live and move and have our being." 

Sometimes a Bible verse pops into my head - I'm not mentally going through verses I might apply to a situation - no it's not like that - it just comes.  I was thinking about my little grandson, when this verse came to me. "For in Him we live and move and have our being." Acts 17:28.  He took a bad fall recently, resulting in a concussion. I was so thankful to God that he was not seriously hurt.  

As the words of that verse played over and over in my head, inspiration for a new quilt series came rather un-expectantly a week later.  Again I was not mentally going through some ideas to picture the verse.  A very loose picture simply came into my mind's eye - shapes floating on a sky background.  

Inspiriation took root and out came hand-painted sky fabric and boxes of scraps.  I began trying out an idea on the work-wall - sky fabrics up first and fabric scraps floating on top. 
I'm excited about the possibilities.  A quilt series had just been birthed.


  1. Oh, I can't wait to see the full series, Marge! Just love this beginning - concept and quilt!

    1. Pat-thanks so much for commenting! I'm excited too. It's pretty windy-how this will go..but that's the creative process..right?!
