    I have been asked about the banner in my avatar. I created it for my church for Easter. I only had 2 weeks to get it ready. It's partly a pattern from Lovenest Designs called Eternal Hope. And it's partly my interpretation. I changed all the colors and enlarged it. I put the stained glass border on to give it more of a window look. The congregation at my church have been most complimentary.
    I posted it one time before. But, the post never made it to the digest. So I'll try again.

    Super Job! Love the changes you made (I was curious what the original looked liked) Your choices and colors really make it spectacular!

    This is so nice. Many years ago I took a stain glass course and at that time decided to copy my designs and later use them to do quilting, before it ever came out...just love this, GREAT JOB

    Those colors remind me of the colors of the stained glass windows of our church. You did a beautiful job - I really love it!
