friend gifted me some of her hand dyed fabric and I challenged myself
to only use those pieces in my favorite technique, Free Style
Cobblestones. With the addition of a machine quilted verse, The joy of
the Lord is my strength" - Nehemiah 8:10and a few buttons, this piece
reminds me of a garden of joy.Measuring 20 1/2 inches X 14 inches) this piece is a cheerful addition to any space. Perfect Gift for a Father's Day, Wedding, Anniversary or Just because. 50% of proceeds benefits missions.
Oddly, when I began to machine quilt this latest Clergy Ministerial Stole, stitches were being missed. I changed needles, re-threaded needle and bobbin but stitches were still being missed. Interestingly switching to a green variegated thread for the green side and purple variegated thread on the purple side and solved the problem and it looks more colorful now too.
This cheerful original miniature art quilt is perfect to brighten a
small space with encouraging truth. Created from specialty batik fabrics
using my Free Style Cobblestone technique, hand sewn to a black canvas
that measures 20" X 16 " and is hand embroidered with the reminder
that "Love never fails" I Corinthians 13:8 to make
it an extra special Wedding Gift.
Machine quilted and signed and ready to hang. A perfect gift for someone special or for yourself.
