Inspiring project....

I finished my project I had started at Karen's workshop and I am pleased with the way it turned out. This will be the piece I refer to, to see if I am improving in my free motion quilting.... Now on to implement this in a big piece YIKES .. It is so much easier when the teacher is there behind your shoulder..
The Guild meets at the Saulnierville parish hall, which is my parish. The walls are large and I thought it would be nice to dress them up with a piece of quilting. I wanted an inspirational piece to keep us grounded when we get frustrated with our quitling projects...LOL

This is the piece I designed for that....

I call it the "Quilters Cross" La Croix des Piqueuses ..... and I hope it will inspire our members to not give up on those projects which often attack our serenity.

Our Parish is named the Sacred -Heart ( Paroisse Sacré-Coeur de Saulnierville ) and I found this embroidery design which is a perfect fit
I had started the stippling before I went to my workshop and when I came back I wished I had waited so I could have used my new skills and added some free motion quilting. Oh well next one!
