Two more beautiful blocks for Sam's Darling Hearts:
From the Strawberry Patch and one from Janet O. at Rogue Quilter! They are perfect! I took the other blocks to camp to show the gals there, and I haven't put them back up on the design wall with these yet, but I will. I can't wait to see how they all look together.
I can't just yet because of the I-can't-reveal-it-yet project that I'm working on.
I have another sneak peak (or two)....
For those of you who guessed states last time, yes...! We are journeying through the south. I should know by this weekend where I'm going! LOL (Sorry, Crispy! I know how you hate sneak peaks!! :-D)
I also received a package containing my Farmhouse Quilt Kit from Laundry Basket Quilts. Just look at how Edyta puts her kit together!
Everything is labeled and folded beautifully so that you can see all the colors and textures. I love her use of color!! And since I'm terrible at using batiks, I figure I'll take advantage of her flair for them to make the Farmhouse quilt from her Friendship Strips and Scraps book.
We also received word while I was at camp that our Sam died of cardiac disrhythmia of unknown etiology. Which means, of course, that his heart stopped and they don't know why. Profound, huh!?
:-) We will probably not know in this life the physiological cause of his death. Paul tells us, though, in 1 Corinthians 13 (Amplified) that the time will come when we will understand "fully and clearly":
12For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as [a]in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand [b]fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been [c]fully and clearly known and understood [[d]by God].
Our family doctor looked over the medical examiner's report and commented that Sam had a large heart! Not at all unusual for a runner like Sam. But we knew he had a big heart long before he started running! :-) Sam's best friend, Luke, commented that Sam loved without filters.
Paul ends his chapter this way:
13And so faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Sam's Darling Hearts will be a visible reminder of what love looks like! I hope my own legacy is that my heart was big and I loved without filters! .
