When I started out full time at Seldom Seen Quilting Studio, I had no idea of the depth of the blessings that God had planned for me there — none! I thought I would simply rent machines to other quilters and putter with my own projects. I agreed to do quilting for family members. From that I gained confidence, and began to take in quilting for others. Then I agreed to make a custom quilt — Sunbonnet Sue, for a family member. One thing lead to another — one confidence grew to embrace another skill and another skill. Today, I find the custom quiltmaking is one of my greatest joys. Like this memory quilt I’ve been working on this week — the second one I’ve made for this family, from their grandfather’s pajamas. I pray as I sew, and I pray that they will be blessed by the quilt — but I have received the first blessings.
