The Prayer Flag Blog Hop is coming!



Have you heard about the prayer flag movement? It is sweeping the art quilting and mixed media worlds. Prayer flags are small pennants or banners, made as invocations – hopes, questions, requests, prayers or wishes. I made some this week; they are pictured above.

Starting next week, several artists – including me – are participating in a blog-hop to help spread the prayer flag concept. We will be sharing our process and techniques of making prayer flags, and encouraging you to get involved. There will also be some great giveaways of DVDs donated by Quilting Arts/Interweave. 

The Prayer Flag Blog Hop
Make sure to check out each hopper’s post for a chance to see some beautiful prayer flags, and win prizes!

  3. I've always been intrigues by these little pieces of beauty, but never made any yet. Maybe this is the time to try them out.

  4. Earlier this year, I spent some time with high school students at my daughters' alma mater as a visiting artist and we made prayer flags...they did some awesome work...so yes, I will be hopping along as well!
