This is the first of a series of Advent banners I did for my church about 5 years ago. I finally have a camera that takes good photos. The idea came from Advent service covers the year before. They just spoke to me. So I called the appropriate people in the Lutheran Missouri Synod and got permission to reproduce the covers into banners. I presented them to Pastor in time for the following Advent season.
The banners are made from cotton twill and are machine applique.
The first one is the angel coming to Mary letting her know she will conceive a child.
