What materials did you use?
Cottons from my stash, and gifts from my incredible sister
Can you share the pattern, I am a new Bishop and I will love to make one like this one.
So sorry; would love to share but I made this up as I created it. I had it posted here early on, but for some reason it disappeared. If you read earlier posts here you can find what I remember about it. Blessings on this new phase of your ministry!
Can you say more about the 60 degree angle? Would you recommend still doing rectangles but joining them to a rhombus instead of a true square? Is the stole set too narrowly?
I plan to use your dimensions to try to craft a crocheted stole.
I made mine at 45 because I wanted a square for the back point so all the pieces of the block would match properly. With crocheting I think you could easily make the angle anything you want (with quilting too, depending on the block design). Yes, I think the 45 degree angle sets the stole just a little too narrow. It works if the back "drops" a little, though that doesn't always happen. The man I made this for is quite slim, and that helped. Good luck, and I'd love to see a photo of your finished project!
Is your pattern available?
So sorry I really made this up as I went. If you can read earlier comments here you'll get an idea of what I did. Generally I cut 1" x 5" rectangles and sewed five of them long-sides together. Those were joined end-to-end with two 1" x 5" pieces sewn horizontally between the blocks. I cut the neck to form a 90 degree angle. (60 degrees is a little better for stoles, but I wanted the pattern to meet squarely at the neck, and 90 worked fine.) The Holy Spirit flames was a simple hand-drawn pattern, and I appliqued them on a single piece of fabric. The interfaith symbols were just charms I found online! Hope this is helpful, and if I can answer any questions, ask away!
