A finish and another fuzzy picture


This week I finished quilting the border of this year's Women's  Conference banner.

It was a bit sad to quilt along each signature and realize how many of those friends have left us since January.

On the other hand, there is hope to add more names as next years conference gears up.

I used variegated blue pearl cotton and large stitching on the water. That was my first attempt and I held off to the last to attack it. I don't think this is my favorite technique.

My husband says the water doesn't look still enough but too still might equal stagnant.

I also added "Psalm 23" to the lower corner. I hope by hanging this in various international churches, along with the information for next years retreat, we will attract more participants to share this weekend of inspiration and Christian fellowship.

  1. The banner is beautiful and the idea of stitching the participants' names is such a good idea.. The 23rd Psalm is one of my favorites. What a special banner that is. The retreat sounds like one I would like to attend. I know that is a special week for you.
