Gulp! I've been asked by our pastor's wife to make some banners for our sanctuary wall, right in front of the whole congregation! She and I are both new members (including the pastor) and who knows what she might have in mind, or what I might be getting myself into. Still, I am game and have gone up to the attic to bring out some previous work, as a starting point. She mentioned something yellow and blue to go with the yellow walls and blue rose window. Hmmm. I have YELLOW. This is an unquilted top which is at least 12 years old. 53x75" I am now confident enough to quilt it. Can you see this as "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God"? Or something else? It might be too too for the sanctuary, or not.
and is quilted and all ready to hang.
This one is sold, but I could remake it larger and with more blue and yellow.
But what about this piece? "Lo, I am with you always?"
Of course there is no text on the piece, and I wonder if the idea comes across. It is also ready to hang, thus eliminating the fear of commissions, which I still have.
And then there is this piece which I made in 2006 and never quilted. Can this be its time? What scripture does it bring to mind, if any? It has lots of blue... Fishers of men?
