    not really stained glass- but a replica of the stained glass window at church. 14 hours later the top is done, but I'm aggravated with my machine- tension is misbehaving. So went to the trusty Juki and am doing a straight stitch on all the black bias.

    So what do you think? I also have some areas where the fabric wants to come out from behind the bias tape- hoping it stays after I sew it down. But if it doesn't- what can I put to make it stay?

    I also have fabric cut to create the wood frame. It will be placed on batting and then muslin to create the wall hanging. Also, I will make my first sleeve for hanging.

    Lots of firsts in this project- and one of a kind, I can guarantee I will never do this again!

    What beautiful work you did. I hope that your problems are solved with the sewing down of the needed parts.
