The design is based on our church's logo:
I scanned the logo and "traced" it in Photoshop to draft a pattern. I used paper piecing for the "stained glass" sections. To achieve this, I straightened the gentle curves in those areas. The background sections required curved piecing. The inner curves were pretty tight; I figure if I can do those, I should be ready to start a pickle dish quilt.
The background fabric is Cotton Couture in Teal. The "glass" pieces are all Kona solids: Chartreuse, Lime, Ivy, Turquoise, and (I think) Lagoon and Caribbean
Here's the back:
I signed it in the upper left, along with a note (I've cloned that part out). I included a dowel which slips into the triangular pockets for hanging. The backing fabric has a little bit of significance which I expect our pastor will recognize.
