Design Wall Monday
It took a long time to pin, and a long time to sew what I've sewn. I don't think it's going to take as long as I thought.
I want to have it done by early November so I can quilt it. Don't know what I'm going to do for the quilting.
I used Microsoft Paint to make up the design for the whole top (to the left). The words "The Lord be with You" are included because that is how he starts many prayers, and gets everyone's attention when we're in a group.
When I was finished with the design I found a free poster program online and enlarged the whole thing to about 36" square. I then traced it because it was quite pixelated and used the traced version to mark the knots and cut out the trunk.
I'm going to quilt it with a white/light backing so it can be signed by the parishoners on the back. The pastor is leaving December 4, so I gotta hurry!
