Here are pics of my Circle of Prayer quilt for the solider from our church who is serving in
This is the original link to my question: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-33845-1.htm
This is the one that I had made a mistake when paper piecing, and had a tip of 2 triangles short. So, I had to patch, and since it is a splotchy batik, the patch shows.
I had thought of doing an appliqué over the patches, but am having a hard time thinking of the right appliqué. Someone suggested doing a praying hand to go with the name of the quilt, I suppose I could do the hands from the label?
I also thought maybe just the quilting would hide the patch seam, so cut the seam using the template I made for the quilting. If this would do it, I wouldn’t have to take time to do the appliqué and could get it off sooner!
I plan to make various size circles as the quilting, so cut my patches following one of the templates.
Sorry about the sloppy pics, but I just threw the quilt on the floor to snap the pics while I had the time. Looking at the pics now, I really should have taken a few seconds and smoothed it out! LOL
The label on the back is a log cabin block, done as Sunshine and Shadows, with the Sunshine being larger. One thing I learned from this quilt – don’t print the label till the very last second! I guess the year it was almost done is close enough! LOL I am only a couple months off.
I have written a long letter explaining the language of the quilt’s blocks to further impress upon him that we all love him and are praying for him.
