Another Finish!

Hi everyone! 

here is the story.  I have a grandson.  He is 9.  He wants to be baptized.  but his mother won't let him. sigh....  When he turned 8 I made the quilt top.  I sat it aside when the drama started.  I was talking to a friend and she said:   finish the quilt, then have the faith that he will be baptized.  soooooooo, the quilt is finished and I will exercise my faith!  So the name of the quilt will be The quilt that faith built! 

Probably too much info here.  Sorry.  But it is a UFO, I busted 8 1/2 yards of fabric.  this was the first time I used a Baptist fan panto.  it was easy, fast and didn't use very many bobbins.  which is amazing to me.  I will be using this panto again, soon! 

thanks for looking and listening! 

hugs....

I'll add my prayers to yours. The quit is lovely and when the time comes (even if he is 18) it will be a very special gift.
