Mustard Seed (part 4)

In part 2 I mentioned that I highlighted the text in the parable of the mustard seed. Here's a close-up that shows the brown fabric marker I added to create a shadow and contrast to make it easier to read.  
And now for the quilting.  First was a zigzag around the stones to serve as the foundation and provide emphasis.
Then I stitched the village houses to look like stones, a free motion feather stitch on the mustard field, and wavy lines in the sky.
 The remainder of the surface was covered with small circles - and lots of thread!

So that's it, the story of the mustard seed quilt and how it all came together.  Hope you enjoyed my story!
