block two

The second block in the study is for Psalm 19 and is called Rising Sun. I am hand piecing these blocks so the edges look a little wonky but will smooth out just fine when I machine piece them together with sashings, etc.
Psalm 19 is one of my favorites. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens He has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from His pavillion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. ...It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
For some rather fun giveaway news, head over to Rana's blog. She has an adorable nautical quilt that I'm going to hope I win :-)
Elinor was helping with quilt prep last night. She sends her regards.


  1. This is such a well made block. I like your colors.

  2. Gee, Loris. You don't pick easy blocks, do you? Beautiful work.

  3. Catching up reading your blog. I see you won the nautical quilt. Congratulations!
    Your blocks are looking great.
