Designing Monday

My design wall has not changed since last week.  No borders added yet to this top.

I found the latest small quilt challenge from Kathleen Tracy on A Sentimental Quilter and made a quick little quilt with leftovers from other projects.  I am thinking I may need to make one of these in R&W.
 Yikes!  I suddenly see mistakes in this photo.  No wonder it didn't look right when I finished it.  I guess I know what I will be doing today.  LOL

Backing fabric

This was a busy week for decorating at church.  I have photos of Lenten decor and Easter decor to share.  I am so in awe of the two women I work with on this as they have so many wonderful ideas.  I help with sewing and provide my husband who is just the right height to reach above the altar.

This is for Lent.  Mostly purple.
Let's look closer.
The altar looks very dramatic.
 I love this shiny purple fabric.

I sewed the purple banners and another person made the white paper banners on her Cricut cutter.

These banners hang on really tall chairs.  They are really uncomfortable to sit in but perfect for this.

 Altar closeup.  The vase laying on its side was a clear glass vase, now spray painted with faux rock finish.
 The purple stripe on the parament is a non woven similar to interfacing that comes in a bunch of colors.  I found it at Hobby Lobby and it is perfect for this as it is just a little stiff and hangs perfectly.
Here is our Easter Decor. Love all the flowers.
 The white behind the cross was a challenge for us, but makes a big statement.
The banners on the side now say He is Risen!  Unfortunately the yellow font is impossible to read from more than 10 feet away.  A learning for next year!
 More purple on the altar.  

Hope you had a blessed Easter day!
