Country Church Quilt

Quilt #9 in my Through Ellyn's Eyes series is finished and it makes me really happy. It's a simple little country church and it has a lot of meaning for me.
Two of my late great uncles were Presbyterian ministers. This has carried on through the generations. I am still a Presbyterian today and my faith is an important piece of who I am.The uncle I knew best was Uncle Les. His church was a sweet little country church in upstate New York. In addition to pastoring, Uncle Les and Aunt Delia had a farm. Mostly they harvested grapes that were sold to Welches. I have fond childhood memories of visiting them in their country farmhouse.
 More walking foot quilting on this one, Also, I'm really becoming fond of big stitch hand bindings on my quilts.
My collection of quilts is growing and I am seeing some distinct themes developing. Which quilt is your favorite so far?

Nice! Cool to have a family connection with this one. And so far, those two buildings in the center are my faves! But a really cool collection overall!

Lovely memories to go with your cute wee church ⛪️ which is one of the favs.
The other has to be the ladder to the window as it could be me climbing up there 😀
