    M sent me this quilt for LAQ. She made this as a farewell gift to her Pastor. There are photos, embroidery, and signature blocks from congregation members.....I know how special this quilt is....I think many of us church members know that feeling of seeing a beloved Pastor leave ....so I know all the LOVE that went into the process of making this quilt.

    She asked that I place doves, hearts and crosses in the Side setting triangles other than that I could do anything else. I would never quilt over pictures...signature blocks ...or special embroidery...so I stippled in the white areas and outlined the photos...loops in the border.

    I quilted this on my INNOVA. No computer or pantograph quilting. I also used HOBBS poly down batting.

    Thanks for looking!

    What a tear jerker that will be when given! How thoughtful of the congregation. It's beautiful.

    What a thoughtful gift for the pastor. Nothing like everyone being involved in getting a piece of the pie. Considerate and very appropriate idea.
