Again, warning.....photo heavy post!!!
The other week I started this new project of places of worship. My head is still spinning with ideas so I'm forging on. Below is how this church came about.
I know, I know, it looks like the beginning of a rocket...hehehehehehe
A rocket with a clock!!! Nope.
Now, it's really coming together. It never ceases to amaze me the awesome different fabrics to choose from whether it be landscaping fabrics, prints, solids, tone-on-tones. There are just so many.
A lot of sky here. BTW, the sky fabric was given to me by my wonderful friend
She's a long-arm quilter who rents her machines so that anyone who'd like to learn to quilt can do so.
After taking the above photo, Mr. Cowboy said, "Looks great, but....," then he just paused like forever and walked way. Oh I really don't like it when he does that but he was right to pause.
It made me think that I needed to add to the body of the church. Also as you can see from the very first photo, I added mountains to the background. I totally love that idea. Unfortunately, I had to add the mountain after I'd glued and pressed everything down. There was a lot of accurate cutting to be done on my part. Whew! It was hard but I got it done!!!
On this block, I went for a pale creamy sky.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep or change the gray brick at this point. The block was looking more like a pyramid which was a bit distracting.
I decided to stick with the bricks. Things are working to my liking once I added a few details.
Again, I've used green and gray fabrics in this block. I know the steeple looks a bit off kilter but it's the shadowing that's making it look that way. I don't think I'm going to change it either!
