For those of you who are “quilt-lovers” you will understand when I say my favorite part of quilting is hand sewing the binding down.
As I sit and work on the binding I realize several things: I am almost finished, I get a chance to look at the beautiful shadows that the quilting cast and I hope the person receiving it loves it as much as I do.
I also thankfully think about the fact that God is never finished with us. He puts all the seams, bumps, and shadows in us to help us and to teach us. Sometimes as I rub and feel the quilt I think of the fact that God created us, loves us, and caresses us. He purposely puts special designs in us, just as I do in my quilts. When I look at the back of the quilt I can see the quilting clearly and am thankful that it turned out so nice; just as we look back on some of the nudging, pulling and molding that God does for us and how His work in us has made us more useful in His kingdom.
“He’s still working on me,” but my quilt for my great niece is finished.
