This was a thank you gift to a pastor that took on the role as our speaker while our minister was on sabbatical. *aside* have you any idea how hard it is to choose a verse for a pastor y'all!?
I started by printing the design I wanted to do. A quilt sandwich was created and the papers were pinned to the sandwich.
Using a darning foot, I traced over the letters, tore the paper away and started colouring them in.
But I didn't like it.
So I started in with the fans.
But I really didn't like it, so I started in with the pebbles.
Have you ever heard the expression "throw more thread at it"? It seemed to work this time around.
