Blogger's Quilt Festival:Fall 2012

Amy's Creative Blog is having her Quilt Festival again and here is my entry. 
 Warning: this blog is very picture heavy! 
The quilt was a BOM called "Singing His Praises", designed by Sherry Moore. The blocks are predominantly paper pieced, so this quilt was a longtime project, the piecing took me a couple of years in between other quilts!
Each block represents a different Hymn, eg. the Crown of Thorns block -"Crown Him with many crowns". If you click on the photos you can see more detail.
There is a narrow red flange around the outer sashing, then a pieced final border.
Blocks are custom quilted with a lot of feathers.
Each corner features a 5" PP block with a little musical note made up of some very tiny pieces!

Some of the blocks like those above and below, were a challenge to quilt.
The quilt was completed and donated to Living Faith Church memorial Fund in 2010 in memory of our beloved son Matthew.
