What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The fusible gridded interfacing that can be purchsed by the yard was extremely helpful in laying out the hundreds of 2-1/2" squares. Also, it makes my points match perfectly once it is sewn!

Hi. the banner is lovely. I thought it was Seminole Patchwork when I first looked at it. I made a chausable and stole for my husband with Seminole patchwork 20+ years ago, and it looked a bit like this. Your church will be blessed with this banner Easter season! Beautiful.
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I am currently making a stole for the minister to wear at a friend's wedding with a waterfall pattern. It's a challenging, but fun project.
The cross seems to glow from the center with the graduated shades of color. This is truly a beautiful and meaningful piece of art!
