Biblical Blocks Quilt

Sandra Pritchard writes,"This quilt was made for Fr. John Antony, Pastor of St. Joseph church in Fayetteville, AR. Fr. John was assigned to our church last October. At that time the congregation had a house warming. The idea to make a quilt came about and many ladies from the church and several from my local quilt guild that are not members of St. Joseph came together and the project began. There were twelve quilters that pieced the top. We also had a few people who donated monetarily.

This project was challenging, for a few of the ladies are true beginners. We all agree that the end result is one we hope Fr. John will be proud of. I know we are proud of it. Again thanks for your book that inspired us all to focus on Biblical Blocks."

Congratulations on making such a beautiful quilt. I love the fabrics you chose.

Apple Tree

My brother, Morris, took this picture of an old apple tree that grows in the orchard near our family home where I grew up in Nova Scotia. This old tree was half dead and has had most of its' branches pruned away but it just keeps on blooming! It's just one example of strength and perseverance in our family. Many of my family members have had major life problems to face and I'm very proud to say that they have always handled them with tenacity and courage.
