A journey through a significant part of my life. Site name JehJireh Spirit Quilts. (Jehovah Jireh) was taken from God's Word which means "God Will Provide". All designs that may be shown are created by help from the Spirit of God, hence "SPIRIT ART QUILTS".

In the Studio 2011
The top picture is my main fabric storage area. The long table is raised with bed risers to accomodate my 5 feet 9 inch frame, and to keep from me breaking my back when I'm doing something that requires a lot of standing. I have added a drop down side on the front of the table that has been padded and covered with flannel. I use this as a small design wall and flannel board to critique some of my small pieces.
On the shelves in the corner are my magazines. The Quilting Arts magazines I have cataloged in note books in the order of their edition.
The bottom photo depicts my recently made design wall. I did not know if I were going to put this wall up or not until one day I needed to photograph a large piece. I'm really glad I did put it up now. The long cabinet next to it is where I store paints, brushes, clay, fabric marking pens and the like.
I'm currently working on finishing some large utility quilts that have been around for a while. I just finished the quilt that my guild members gave me blocks for years ago. I'm now finding borders and backing for a two and one half inch light and dark square quilt. I have about five or six large quilts that I plan to finish by the grace of God. Well, I must be getting back to work and away from this computer.
