The Lord is My Shepherd

In my recent acquisition of fabric I found several pre-printed panels  that featured the 23rd Psalm and a beautiful waterfall scene.  A total of six! As well as a matching pillow...

I was excited on Friday to pull one out and begin the sandwiching process... until I noticed that the scene was not printed straight.  

After a quick assessment, I decided that the easiest fix was to cut the border off, square up the center and do my best to get the border sewn back on as straight and square as possible without taking too much away from the stained glass look.

I feel as though I was successful, with the exception of the "sway" in the corners.

But once it was quilted and binding was done, it was not noticeable.

This one will hang in our church.   

Here is a close up of some of the detailed quilting that I did...

Would you have done something differently?  I have five more panels... and I am always open to other ideas and suggestions for fixing a problem.  Please share...

  1. It is absolutely beautiful Melva. I really love it. I think you did an awesome job squaring it up. And I am sure the quilting looks fantastic also.

  2. What a lovely panel! Your church will definitely be enhanced with this addition. Do all the other panels have the same problem?

    1. Thank you. And, yes, unfortunately, they have the same problem.
