Church banner.........

This photo isn't the best quality because I only had my little camera with me at church sewing circle yesterday when we finished our banner for Pentecost, the birthday of the Christian church.  This banner was made by committee and turned out better than our expectations.  It is one layer of red satin.  I made the quilted dove as a free standing addition. We attached the dove with big running stitches from the back about 2" in from the edge.  We applied Wonder Under to the back of lame (la-may) and were pleasantly surprised that after it was pressed in place it curled slightly when cool.  That probably wouldn't have happened if there had been more than one layer of fabric for the banner.  There are some sheer mesh flames on there too that don't show up very well in the photo.We plan on having a small fan blowing near it so it will flutter in the breeze.

I had to laugh at Suzan's comment. As soon as I read it, the song was stuck in my head.

The banner is great. I am impressed that it came out so well after being made by committee. Ha ha.

What a great quilt and how well it captures the spirit of what happened at Pentecost. The fan is the perfect touch.
