The back hall of the House of Prayer needed a quilt. It was a joy of a journey conceiving, cutting, sewing, and sourcing materials for it. The top is made predominantly of Moda Bella Solid in silver and features a bit of my favorite Sunkissed by Sweetwater print. I brought all the fabric for the top from home, and the back is a 100% cotton sheet picked up from TK Maxx. The batting – or “wadding” – is a woven cotton from Dunelm Mill. I figured the weave would negate the need for dense quilting, and sure enough, it was fine. I self-bound by tucking and turning under the excess backing, threw it in the wash, and let it dry over the radiator. The quilt gets a lot of use as folks curl up on couches or snuggle close to the radiator. I’m so thankful for the ability to share my heart with my beloved HOP through my favorite art form!
