Project Quilting is an annual challenge hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams. The first theme is Hope Springs Eternal. I struggled for a few days trying to come up with an idea. I kept thinking about new flowers growing, wishing well, etc.
After playing around on the computer, I finally decided on the dove from Noah's ark. Noah had hope (and faith) that God would save them and that they would find land. I ran out of time, so my piece is very simple -- the dove and the corner of Noah's Ark.
The dove returned with an olive branch, evidence of land.
I was having trouble with my machine, so organic wavy lines instead of waves and clouds.
This piece finishes at 13 x 18 inches and uses Kona White, Chocolate, Black, and Holly.
I used the Crafted Applique method created by Lara @ Buzz in Bumble.
Are you playing along with Project Quilting this season?
