Hand Dyed Teach Us To Number Our Days

I enjoy having a hand quilting project to easily pick up 
and take with me when I know I will have some "waiting time". 
 "Teach Us To Number Our Days Carefully"  Psalm 90:12
is the featured verse on this wall quilting that I pieced
using my Free Style Cobblestone method
using only gleaned hand dyed fabric strips.

Variegated Thread Stole Update

Oddly, when I began to machine quilt this latest Clergy Ministerial Stole, stitches were being missed.  I changed needles, re-threaded needle and bobbin but stitches were still being missed.  Interestingly switching  to a  green variegated thread for the green side and purple variegated thread on the purple side and solved the problem and it looks more colorful now too.
