    Banner quilt for church

    I was asked to make a banner for church. We have a banner committee of 2 ladies and neither sews or crafts. They order screen printed banners from a catalog. I am a little nervous that this will not be what they expected, although they did ok it before I started. It is a SAS and is on pinterest and the internet, only in purples. Due to the liturgical church calendar and when they want it to hang they requested greens. I am tired of green at the moment. Ready to load it on my LA and get it done. Thanks for looking!

    Sorry, I don't know how to turn this, it was upright on my screen and I chose small for the size.

    That is so much better than a screen printed banner! I predict they will want to use it all year. (Or ask you to make another, and another, and another...)

    You did a fabulous job. I agree with Dunster that you will be asked to make more banners.

    Oh my goodness....this is wonderful!! The greens are gorgeous in this pattern. Eyes will be drawn to it, which is exactly its intention. I'd say you scored huge on this!!

    Beautiful, it is so much better than screen printed premaid banners. You will be asked to make more.

    Simply beautiful! After seeing this beautiful little masterpiece. I think you will get even more requests for banners.

    So you don't get a kink in your neck. I find it so annoying when pics post sideways. If you click on it, it is straight. I am attaching this pic from another site, hoping it works. Fingers crossed. I appreciate all the nice comments. Thank-u

    Absolutely beautiful and perfect for a church setting - makes me think of the story in the Bible of Jesus calming the storm at sea. Nice work!
