    Stained glass quilt

    At long last I finally got a photo of the quilt I made last year for our pastor and wife for their wedding. It really isn't wonky - it is hanging over a sofa, and to we could get a photo shot of the entire quilt, I laid the lower part of the top of the sofa. Hope you all like it.

    Wow, I really didn't type that out well at all! It should have said, the lower part of the quilt was placed on the top side of the sofa. Sorry bout that.

    All the blocks going down are the verses from Corinthians on love. Angels on the side bar of the cross. They did really love it, unfortunately he passed away before their first anniversary. She still has the quilt though.

    How sad that he passed away before their 1st anniversary -- but that quilt is a part of wonderful memories for her, I'm sure. Beautiful
