This quilt has taken me about 18 months to make after the idea swished around in my head for a few years. The window is digitized, appliqued and embroidered. Around that is my rendition of the street scene of the Via Dolorosa in the  form of quilt lines. on either side I quilted palm leaves from palms in my yard as patterns. I absolutely loved making this quilt.

Oh, Jeanette, we simply must see some close up pictures of this!  I can't zoom in on the "window" panes.

Thank you all. I will post a few details of the quilt for MNnancy.

These will show the street scene of the Via Dolorosa (one of the stations of the cross still in existence in Jerusalem) and the palm leaves that hang over the edge of the quilt. I will also show the jellicle moon that is in the left corner (outside the picture) of the quilt.
