I was inspired to do this quilt after a visit to the Church of the Sacred Heart in Paris, France. This quilt became the first in The Churches Series.
I used permanent ink to do a sketch on fabric of an original photograph and colored it with fabric paints. Free machine quilted. Embellished with beads, embroidery, yarn, hand-knit hearts, buttons, metal findings, and computer prints on fabric of medals of St. Theresa of Lisieux and St. Dennis, a stamp of Joan of Arc, and a photo of the inside of the church. The calligraphy on fabric.
