Lenten Textiles (shown above)
Two banners and a crown of thorns, made by St Paul’s Textile Group, were on display in the church over the period of Lent. The banners were long and slender, designed for mounting on pillars, and they were situated near the front of the church, on either side of the central aisle.
One was a machine quilted ‘mosaic’ design in purple and yellow fabrics on a black cotton background. The careful placing of the yellow mosaics produced a silhouette of Jesus on the cross, while paler mauve fabrics on the purple hillside formed the words ‘Broken for Me’.
The other banner featured a gold cross of nails and plaited crown of thorns appliquéd onto a machine quilted background of various textured fabrics, graduating in colour from pale mauve to deep purple.
