Thank You Jesus for Earnest Requests...

Not being an expert quilter I've never thought of myself as a teacher of the skill.  I can't make those amazing quilt tops that dazzle the eye and win blue ribbons.  I've never attempted curves and angles all neatly arranged and stitched so intricately.  Many of my seams wobble and I cringe when I think about how my binding sometimes falls off with use. Still I love to make warm quilts with pretty colors. My family seems to like them.  It's a great arrangement.

Last month a friend asked me to teach her how to quilt. "Me?" I thought.  But she was so earnest that I agreed.  We selected a pattern, material and I showed her how to prepare and cut out her quilt. I did for her what a friend did for me in the past...I taught her what I knew.

And she has made a beautiful quilt!
