Feathered Star

May was not only the big wedding month, but it was also the time for the annual BPF Retreat in Indiana. Six fun filled days of quilting with liked-minded friends! A group of us hit up a great quilt shop, The Back Door, on the way to the conference center, where I purchased this star quilt kit. It's a paper pieced Mini Feathered Star pattern by Cindi Edgerton of Little Bits. The fabrics are reproduction Colonial Christmas and it measures 17" square. I was able to start the flying geese units while at retreat, and then came home and put it away until after the wedding. It's now pieced and ready for quilting and binding!

Think I might have to make another one!!!

And The Two Became One

My son, Jacob, married his beloved Rachel on Sunday! It was a beautiful, simple wedding ceremony held during the Sunday morning worship service. I hope that some day these two will share the story of their courtship. It is an encouraging one, and one that our children should hear. I know that they don't want to be in the spotlight, but they are a true testimony to what serving God with their heart, mind and body looks like. I cried on Sunday! I'm crying now!! Tears of joy!

Mrs. D's baby boy has taken a wife!!

Hope to post a few more pictures as soon as my darling daughter sends them to me!! Hint-hint!
