Multimedia Creations

This past week I had the joyful opportunity to share my quilts, and my quilting journey, as part of the morning worship service at a church in Wales, WI. Pastor Petterson was a joy to work with. He even built stands for my quilts to hang from.

Sanctuary quilts

Once we had the quilts hung, he invited me to see a collection of fiber art hanging in the lower level, made by church secretary Heidi Schueller. To get there we needed to go down the cinder block staircase – and the decorations there made me smile:

Pastor Peterson called Heidi’s fiber art “Creation Panels”. She used many different media and techniques to create them. Then she hung signs next to each panel with the Scripture verse for that day on one side and a simple poem about each day for the children to read, on the flip side. They are fascinating!

Day 1 - Let there be light!

Day 2 - Heaven in the midst of the waters.

Day 3 - every green thing that grows.

Day 3 – The land and things that grow.

Day 4 - the sun, the moon and the stars.

Day 4 – The sun, moon and stars.

Day 5 - Sea creatures and flying things.

Day 6 - Animals and man.

They hang around a corner in a hallway, and really cheer up the hall!

Here are a couple of close-ups, so you can enjoy the details, from yarns to buttons, and fabric to paper. There’s a little bit of everything put together in a delightful way!

I hope you found Heidi’s creations as appealing and interesting as I did!

It was a wonderful morning of worshipping the Lord, and fellowship! Thanks Pastor Petterson, Bonnie Morris and Jerusalem Presbyterian!

    I can only imagine the joy this entire experience gave you. Sharing your joy!

    Thanks so much for sharing these. I love the whole idea of this. That she used all kinds of materials relatively readily available can encourage so many others to interpret into art other favorite messages from His word.
