Faith

Let me tell you the story of how this art cloth titled "Faith" has come about.



The Houston Quilt Festival catalogue recently turned up in my mailbox and I was trying to decide which workshops to take in November. I narrowed down my choices to two instructors, Pam Holland and Jane LaFazio.

I visit their blogs frequently to check in on what they've got going on.

Jane's Recycled Circles and Pam's crosses seen in New Mexico inspired me and I remembered a drawing I posted here before.



Often times, my drawings get put on the shelf or left in sketchbooks and I forget about them or where I've put them. (One of the benefits of blogging is that there is a visual and virtual record of what you've created that can be easily referenced.)

So I took out my basket of stash fabric and stitched "Faith". Now that's finished, I think it would make a good journal cover. I just have to get busy on the rest of the journal!

What a beautiful piece. The yarn and fabric of the cross give a real feeling of old, splintery wood.
