There have been a few mentions in previous posts of the Lenten Banners that the Quilters are working on. Here is a brief glimpse of my progress. The blocks are really easy, 12.5″ square cut in half at any angle that pleases, a contrasting strip of purple sewn to join the two halves back together. Then turn the block 90 degrees and cut in half again, inserting another strip. Then trim the block back to 12.5″. The banners will be three blocks wide, and four blocks long (36″ x 48″). I am also working on a matching stole. The deadline is the first Sunday of Lent, February 17. I better get at it!
