Sparkle Jane Finish: Blue Bargello from Wedding Dress Blue

Sparkle Jane has waited a long time for this finish.

She started the quilt about six years ago (age 13).  The piecing went well, but then it was time for quilting.  She started hand quilting it, got about half way and decided that she didn’t like the way it looked.

W.I.P: Something Blue from Sewing Under the Little Mushroom Cap

Progress matters than perfection.

Little by little you’ll get there.

I love that the process of making a quilt is really about making small progress each day/each session you have.

It reminds you that in life if you want anything – make progress towards it every day. Even just a tiny step.

Even if it just means what you do that day is simply a two minute pray.

I believe in miracles, I believe in the impossible.

And I hope all of you are making that tiny steps towards ...
