Ever Widening Circle Stoles

This set of five stoles was designed for a bishop’s assistant. The recipient worshiped with a different congregation nearly every Sunday, so he requested the stoles be portable (not wrinkly) and versatile in color.

I chose quilt cottons in traditional patterns to accomplish those two requirements. Fabric selection and the set of the patterns create a more contemporary effect. The star/cross motif is repeated in each design. The quilt pattern is concentric circles made with a wavy stitch, suggesting the movement of the Gospel into the world.
