Sew Happy Friday - A Great Idea for A Scrappy Nine Patch Block


If you happen to like to keep every little scrap of fabric that could be used for quilt making, this pattern idea might be just what you need to put that part of your stash to work. 

Nicole over at “mama love quilts” offers this tutorial for the Remixed 9-Patch Block.

I like the idea myself, but I have to say that I’d cut the squares at 5” so that they could be easily mixed with 5” charm squares.  I’ve been working on building up a collection of 5” patches for future reference as I cut various projects.  It’s also a standard pre-cut size, so that works for me.  However, you could really make these any size you wanted.

I’m wondering how it would look for a “Disappearing 9-Patch”.  Ideas, ideas.  :-)

The Birth of Jesus Christ – Part 7, Luke 1:48-56


If you missed the first parts of this study on the birth of Jesus, you may wish to go back and start at the beginning.

In today’s study we will consider various things Mary said in her declaration and finish up with her return “to her own house” – a very curious turn of phrase which again brings up certain aspects of so-called “Biblical Patriarchy” and the teachings of Doug Phillips, Bill Gothard and others.

Evening Song – Rejoice In the Lord


Job 23:9-10  On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

Sew Happy Friday – Cute Chicken Pincushions


Here’s another tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Co., only this one isn’t for a quilt, it’s for some nifty and easy chicken pincushions.  They’re made with just three squares of fabric and some other bits and pieces.
