The Story Behind New Mercy Quilt

It's been a month since my quilt New Mercy was released. It was such a joy to show it all to you! I really hope you've enjoyed the pattern and various color ways as I have. If you missed the release, the pattern can be purchased here.

New Mercy Quilt

I started designing this quilt in the later winter of 2022. I had some downtime while my son was taking an evening kids acting class, and I spent the time doodling on graph paper instead of doing more important things! Drawing designs with straight lines, trying out different colors, was quite cathartic. 

New Mercy Quilt

It takes some courage, but I want to share my story with you.
A little over a year ago, I was diagnosed with having a rare type of malignant tumor. After multiple surgeries and treatment, I found myself well (praise the Lord!) but still emotionally fragile. It had been a dream of mine for years to somehow own a quilt shop. I remember sitting at my sewing machine and the thought that I'd never be able own a small business (without the necessary health insurance) stopped me in my tracks.
 Ever have one of those life changing moments?
 I had been listening to the Craft to Career podcast and decided I could start an online quilt shop and still continue working as a public school teacher daily. 
After that decision, I started designing this quilt. The name New Mercy comes from the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” This is a testimony to God's faithfulness to me not only during cancer treatments, but through daily trials as well. Do I need grace for my parenting? Yep. Do I need grace for my thoughts or words? Yep. Yet God provides new mercies for us every day. I hope you find new mercies for your life as well.
