Here I am in class at the quilt shop (the shop is called A Scarlet Thread and is owned by Christians). Beth's quilt pattern is called "Take 5" because there are 5 coordinating fabrics and each fabric is in the block in five varying positions throughout the quilt. I think that's what the instructor said...remember, I am a beginner.
Here are the five different fabrics in the quilt. I sent an email to Nancy Mattingly (I met her at the So Long Insecurity Conference and LOVED her) at Living Proof Ministries to ask her what colors Beth liked...and she said "pink." So I bought fabric that had lots of pink! The material is called "In the Garden." (Now there's a subject I know and love, gardening!) But I did have a blast learning to quilt. It's just hard for me to be still that long.
It wishes sweet Beth a Happy Birthday and reminds her that she is "covered in His love."
Here is the Birthday Girl and her beautiful office manager Sabrina Moore, holding up the quilt. Beth was sweet enough to let me know that she had received her quilt. (In fact both Sabrina & Evangeline at LPM went out of the way to let me know the quilt had arrived. Beth's staff serve with hearts of gold!) I hope that every time she snuggles for a nap or takes some Sabbath rest, Beth will feel just how much I love her! God has used her ministry to bless me, and I have attempted to bless other women as I serve in women's ministry at my church out of the overflow of His grace in my life.
I am so thankful that we are all covered in His love! Happy Birthday Bethie! :)
