Jeremiah 29:11 - This Bible promise is the basis for the naming of this new quilt, for a young lady named Honesty. Isn't that a beautiful name? I think she needs a bit of encouragement and this promise was made for that: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." We can all use a promise like that!
I made this quilt all from scraps symbolizing the way God takes what we consider to be rags, leftovers and of no account and turns them into something beautiful. The rotating bands symbolize that there is no direction we can go where He will not be with us. And the diamonds show us right in the center of His will.
Honesty loves purple so that is the feature color. But the beauty of one color is intensified by contrast so a bit of teal is added. The fabrics are patterned with flowers and butterflies - symbols of hope.
I left all the layers under the diamonds so they would have a volume and puffiness to them and stitched in the ditch around them.
The rest of the quilting is swirls and loops up and down each of the color bars.
I used a verigated thread for the quilting.
