meditation panels in June
The church hall was set up to serve a dinner party last Thursday and the Mended World meditation panel was propped against the back wall.It was as good a reason as any to work outside. I've finally decided on how to hand quilt the 'heaven' part of the Earth Ark panel. We began a new technique. Reverse applique. Linen damask tablecloth is layered on top of blue silk or cotton fabric. A hole is cut in the top layer to reveal what is underneath. It takes practice to neatly hand stitch the dots. We need masses of these dots to make up the bottom half of the third meditation panel. The fellowship the group enjoys on Thursdays seems to be stitched into these panels. Drop in attendence is encouraged over the entire day.
