Our family attends St Pauls United Church of Christ in Chicago, where I am happy to make paraments and vestments. These red ones were for the congregation's 160th anniversary. You can see them with their academic gowns and their pastoral albs. The anniversary is on Reformation Day, a day of the Spirit
so the color of that day is red. It was so wonderful to work with red. The insides of the stoles are a firey orange batik, commemorating the
Spirit, and the church rebuilding from the Chicago Fire and another devastating fire in the late 1950s.
I used a different log cabin style for each pastor.

I love seeing quilting and piecing creeping into chaplain attire and banners and podium coverings and everywhere else that quilting can creep into! Beautiful, and I love the red...I can imagine the firey red batik just being SO bold, wish I could see up close!

What a great job, and I'm sure it's much appreciated by the clergy too!
