7,369 Miles - Made It! Baby Rag Quilt

While on vacation this spring, I had so much fun making two baby rag quilts for some special little girls. I also made the girls matching elephants, which can be purchased from Doodlebug & Friends.

I found a Rag Quilt Tutorial on Beverlys.com that explained exactly what to do and vas very easy to follow. Both quilts were cut out and sewn together in about 6 hours. The tedious part for me was cutting the edges. These little quilts are super soft and warm.

In The Right Place

In righteousness shalt thou be established… Isaiah 54:14

To be established in righteousness means to be in a right place with God. It means you can stand in the presence of a Holy, Powerful, Loving God without any guilty feeling.

7,369 Miles - Sewing Projects

When traveling 7,369 Miles, 1 Month, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 10 States, with 1 Suitcase, 1 Duffle Bag, a Toddler and an iPod you may need to sew something. I'd suggest just packing an emergency sewing kit, but in my case, I packed my sewing machine, a bag full of fabric, cutting board, notions and a bunch of patterns. 

David's family was very gracious to allow me to turn their dinning room into a sewing room while we were visiting and I had a blast being creative!

The first thing I sewed was Caden's shorts, the seam fell apart in the wash!

Next on my to do list was make these adorable elephants from Retro Mama.

Wake Up

Awake to righteousness, and sin not… 1 Corinthians 15:34

According to the Bible, the power of sin and death has been beaten in your life (Romans 8:2). You are no longer ruled by the forces of evil, but by God Himself.

It’s Not Because of Anything You’ve Done

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.  2 Corinthians 5:21

You are righteousness. 

You are a joint heir with Jesus (Romans 8:17).
