Symbols of Faith

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was my first attempt at paper piecing. The blocks are 7 inch square. Each block contains many pieces, some of which are very tiny. The wall hanging is approximately 29 inches square. Each block is hand quilted (lap quilted) before being sewn together. Once the backing was added, I stitched in the ditch along the black strips. The backing is muslin. I was really pleased with the multi-colored border fabric. I thought it pulled all the colors together.

What you will need

  • Misc cotton prints

Pamillia asked:
Beautiful, your borders do pull it together. I think that your borders make it look like a stained glass window. Your quilting is wonderful, what a treasure. Thank you so much for sharing.
Eunice4 answered:
I was trying to get a stain glass window look. Glad to hear your observation.
