Arms of Love

Another detail image of Arms of Love. Here, the focus is on the crucifixion. Note the thorns on the crown of thorns are done with a satin stitch--the left hand guiding the quilt in the machine and the right hand adjusting the width to achieve the sharp points.

The elements of communion are shown as wheat and grapes representing Christ's names as Bread of Life and Fruit of the Vine. Wings represent resurrection. The candle means Light of the World. The crown stands for King of Kings with five jewels on the band depicting Christ's five flesh wounds.
