From last week's design wall, I finished the eight 25-patch batik blocks, and am ready for the next step in the process of making this liturgical quilt. The original was made by Joanne Wietgrefe for her church in Ithaca, NY. She actually designed and made 4 different quilts to hang throughout the year. They are beautiful in print, so I can imagine in person that are stunning. Hers are 7 ft x 10 feet. Of course mine will be for me and will not hang in a church nor will it be 7 ft by 10 feet.!! The story of how she made them and the original picture can be found in the Winter 2006 issue of American Quilter. I tried to take a picture in the magazine of the one I'm doing, but it didn't turn out too well. May try later. You will just have to "wait and see" as mine progresses.
To catch up with pillowcases, here are 4 that I finished last week. I'm a far cry from the number I agreed to, but slowly I'll get there.
