Tried to post this a couple days ago but unsuccessful; will try again. Made this wall hanging for church sanctuary at request of the "quilting ladies". I designed it and used all batiks for background and cotton with silk for dove and metallic threads for quilting; added blue and gold crystals for "bling" (look like little black dots in photo). Sewing with metallic threads very difficult; metallic kept unraveling from polyester base; rethreaded machine a hundred times. I'm very pleased with results; when done, I looked and saw an unplanned feature---a cross behind the dove. God works in mysterious ways.
