Quilt # 104
|Swastika United Church - front|
This little 12” x 12” quilt was made as part of a Miniature Guild Challenge. Members were divided into groups of 4 or 5. Our group chose “buildings” as our theme.
I used a photoshop program to turn my photo into a sketch, reversed it and printed it onto stabilizer. I stitched from the back and then added details using a fine line marker and a little colour using fabric colouring pencil.

I entered all the information that would usually be on a label in my machine and embroidered it in black thread in a circle around the design.
I quilted three different designs in the background using white thread on white fabric.
A black and grey stripe was used for the binding.
This little church was part of our lives when we live in Swastika even though we were not members of that church.
My husband and I led a Cub Pack there for many years and attended many community events where everyone was always made welcomed
