"Cross My Heart" -- Quilted Table Runner
By "Ruffled Feathers" (aka: Valerie Almquist)
Based on the traditional "Blackford's Beauty" pattern, I designed this table runner with the children who have crossed my heart during the past year in mind, especially those with heart conditions. Jewel-toned squares of oriental floral fabric accent the corner blocks in a diagonal fashion, drawing the eye toward the aqua toned star in the center of the piece. The heart of the quilted piece however is the cross design found in the chocolate colored fabric that also has notes of gold and aqua dancing through its fabric's print. The center of each cross anchors the colors in a strong striped pattern of chocolate, gold, aqua, and avocado. The table runner has 3 blocks that have subtle variations in the jewel-tone colors in the smaller squares. The neutral tone on tone floral pattern in off-white looks fabulous on a wood table!
Size is 16.5" x 44.5"
Hand pieced, machine quilted

"Armor of God" Teddy Bear
Eph 6:10-17 (NIV) ...Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


"Vera Bradley" bag/purse (also donated by Amy)


This bundle of CD's was donated by one of my favorite radio hosts, Dawn Madsen. Dawn is the music director at Spirit 92.9 out of St.Cloud,MN. She and her twin sister, Diana co-host the morning show there. If you are in our area, I urge you to tune in. Or simply visit their website and listen live... You WILL be blessed!
