Block 5 and two rows finished...

You can download Block 5 of The Lord's Prayer Stitchalong here from my shop today.

"Be Thy Name" is the last block in the second row of what will become an eight row wall quilt when we have completed all 26 blocks...

If you've been stitching the blocks and following the border instructions I put in each week's pattern you can now sew blocks 2-5 together to form the second row, then join it to the first row...

 How are your blocks coming along?

 Here are this week's photos emailed to me by readers who are stitching along...

Christina has her fabrics and threads chosen and is ready to begin...lovely and bright!

Jessica is stitching THREE quilts - a burgundy set of blocks, a red & grey set, and she's just traced blocks for a red & white set too...wow!

We'd love to see your photos too, so why not email them to me so I can share them here on the blog next Monday. 

I think these blocks are a perfect start to each week, don't you?
Have a blessed day, dear friends!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
