    Easter Banner for Church

    It's not quilted but it does have batting to help it hang better. This is the first banner I have made. The pastor requested it and I have a feeling he will be requesting more. The purple fabric can be removed and the white added for Easter Sunday. Sorry I don't know how to turn them right side up.

    Perfect!

    Do you have slits for the scarves to slip into? Did you make your own pattern for this? It depicts Easter perfectly!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Yes, the cross isn't sewed down completly along the crossbar. The fabric slides in behind. I saw a picture on Google that was sort of like this but it's my own rendition of that banner. Get this - Pastor says well we can't hang it until Easter Sunday because is says "He is Risen". Past tense. What?!? Of course it's past tense. It happened a long time ago. I told him it needed to be hung with the purple now and change to white on Easter Sunday and would get black if he wanted that for Good Friday. (I keep wanting to say Black Friday)lol We haven't done a Friday service for years. New pastor changes everything.
