Green Altar Parament

I’ve been needing to document this project for a while now. Today is the day. I received permission to create a green parament for the altar at my church – collected green samples and purchased yardage for the chosen few. First job was to create a pattern. It was to be a stained glass affect. I love this art because it is so freeing to think outside the box and create whatever God may place within my reach.

Here are some pictures of the process. Hope you don’t find it too boring:) I love the art and am dreaming of a purple parament for Advent!

After drawing the pattern to lay on the table, I copied it to cut up and use to cut the fabric. Each piece is numbered.

It all looks so easy with these few pictures. It was a work of love!

This cute little bag is just right to go out with the girls for lunch and shopping!  It measures 9″ wide and 10″ tall and is 2.5″ deep.  The pattern contained explicit details for cutting and construction.  I appreciate all the work that went into the creation of the pattern!


Prayer Garden Quilt

A few squares of the Prayer Garden Quilt were displayed in an earlier blog.  As we all do, it was abandoned for awhile as other pursuits called in a louder voice.  Well, it’s all finished and delivered now!  I was led to finish it for a grand daughter’s birthday so was able to customize it for her as a queen-size quilt – complete with gardening pictures, Bible scripture, and ruffles!IMG_1918[1]
