things I haven't shared... and small quilt swap

Sounds deep, doesn't it.
Well, some of it is.  Deep that is.
Personal grief is something I've not shared here much.
(If you are a pray-er, please add me and my family to your list, thank you.)
But I believe there is a higher power
and a reason for things happening - reasons I just don't know, yet.
And out of it, comes strength, and deepening love.

So, out of the deep and into positiveness -
Also lately, I haven't shared much in the way of quilting fun.
I participated in a small, primitive quilt swap
and this is what I sent to my swap partner, 
Roberta of New York.
So My Ohio Geese flew to New York:
Not the greatest of pictures, with no staging or softness, but at least I got a picture before I mailed it!  I almost had it packed for shipping when I realized that I didn't have a picture.

I love flying geese, and I love the log cabin block,
so I put those two together and made her a 'Geese through the Cabin' little quilt!
I used some of my favorite browns and oranges, and some muslin for the geese,
and quilted it with my Sashiko machine in a dark ecru quilting thread.

I have shared the next photo before,
but I think, it's nice to put the two swap quilts together in a post -
the little quilt I received back in exchange -
the New York Geese that flew to Ohio:
I think it's great that we both did flying geese in our swap quilts
even though it wasn't a theme!! 

Thanks for visiting, and thanks in advance for prayers sent my way.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!


  1. Whatever challenges you are facing, my thoughts are with you. Hope your sewing and creating brings you comfort. Love your blocks!

  2. Praying you will find strength and peace.

  3. I am praying for you and your family--
    have some happy thoughts today-
    smiles and hugs, di

  4. The geese quilt makes up very nice in the fall colors. A whole large quilt of those log cabin style blocks would be very good.

  5. Oh Debra, I just knew something was wrong. Whatever your struggles, I will be praying for you and sending all my positive energy your way. There is strength in friendship, however new. Take care my friend.

  6. Sending you good thoughts and a lot of strength - you are on my list!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
