Just Believe Mini art quilt

This quilt is for Project Quilting Season 3 challenge #2. The challenge was to pick song lyrics to inspire your quilt. I actually asked Mr Gorgeous what song he thought I should pick. He suggested the new song we just sang in church on Sunday, Overcome by Jon Egan. The bridge lyrics say this:

"We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Everyone overcome."

When I read these lyrics and when I sing them, I think about all of the mountains in front of us that stop us from reaching the potential that God wants us to reach; the dreams that He has buried deep in our souls...and that lead me to think about the verse that is embroidered here on this mountain - Mark 11:23

"I assure you that whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea’—and doesn’t waver but believes that what is said will really happen—it will happen." (Common English Translation)

How awesome is that???? So I added the flowers and birdie on the right hand side of the mountain to remind myself that the beauty is reachable...the dream is there, once that mountain is cast into the sea. All I have to do is ask and believe!!

 

I used raw edge applique and "mountainous" quilting on the mountain. Then I did swirly meandering on the background. I used Sweetwater fabrics from their line Hometown. The little bird on the flower is from Anthropologie. (so fun!!). I framed the quilt by securing it to foam core board and putting in a glass-less frame.

 

This quilt is 16"x20" and made in Texas!!
