Church Quilt officially finished

I put the label on yesterday, so here is the finished quilt. It is nearly 7 feet each way, and will be hung in our church foyer on Saturday. We called it, "God so loved the world..." and are glad it is done, but really pleased too. Would we make another? I doubt that I would, but maybe something smaller using the same technique. It is mostly batik pieces fused to the black background using Steam a Seam II.

Now I've started another Quilt of Valor using purples and greens. I found a fast and funky way of sewing the blocks that only look complicated. I'll post some photos... but have to take them first! Life is really far too busy.
