Pentecost Flames

St. Thomas Lutheran ELCA, Bloomington, IN, USA

Using commercial fabric from Guatemala and the United States, plus handwoven dyed chennille fabric from the loom of Suzanne Halvorson, Bloomington, IN, Patsy created this award winning, three dimensional, center hanging.

The original design hangs from a triangular hanging devise. The tops of the flames are sewn upon black netting, then the three points come together with a clip. The large centers of the flames are open and allowing large dangling sequins to move with the air currents. Each of the three flame banners are slightly different.
