Spring Fling

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!

Q&A with thesilverpenny

BeckysMommy asked:
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.
thesilverpenny answered:
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.
SueAskirtedlady asked:
The cross seems to glow from the center with the graduated shades of color. This is truly a beautiful and meaningful piece of art!
thesilverpenny answered:
Thank you!
Margorie asked:
Is there a pattern?
thesilverpenny answered:
No, I'm sorry there is not a pattern, I created it myself from scratch. I used the Pellon 1" Tru-Grid sheer quilting fusible to layout the cross and radiating squares, which made it very easy.
pizzamama210 asked:
Are there instructions somewhere for using this Tru-Grid?
thesilverpenny answered:
The instructions for using the fusible web with a printed grid can be found on the package. A good fabric store will carry it.
Quiltbobbin asked:
Can you share the finished size? A lovely work of art for your church.
thesilverpenny answered:
My finished lectern banner is about 30 inches by 36 inches, but you could make it to whatever size you need.
