My Latest Wallhanging and a Giveaway Winner!

I gave you a sneak peak yesterday. This is the wallhanging I made for Arms of Hope and their silent auction that is coming up the first week in May. They are a haven for abused, neglected, and needy children. They also help single mothers through tough times. 
The verse is from Hosea 14:8 and says, "I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that's always green; all your fruit comes from me." Although I couldn't get the contrast to show it, the "fruits of the Spirit" are quilted in at the top above the tree....love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (It's like I'm creating a sermon in cloth!)
 The fabrics used (except for the brown batik used for the tree) are from Amanda Murphy's Bella collection. (You should see her new Christmas fabrics!)
  
Congratulations to Joyce Carter who was chosen by the random number generator to win a free pattern from my Craftsy shop! Thank you ALL for playing along and visiting me during the blog hop! Be sure and tune in for the Shake Your Pom Poms hop starting Wednesday. I will show my pom pom projects on the 30th.

  3. How lovely, comforting and inspiring this wall hanging will be for someone, while also providing help for people in need. Good for you for contributing.

    Although it is hard to see, I love how you have added words to this wall hanging by just quilting them. They don't stand out in an in-your-face kind of way, but they are there for anyone who takes the time to look.
