Splendor of the Rajahs

Made in 1989, Splendor of the Rajahs (designed by Joyce Schlotzhauer) is one of my few hand quilted pieces.

Although I love the look of hand quilting it's extremely time consuming so in the interest of productivity I switched to machine quilting in the year 2000. But I have to admit there's just something extra special about hand quilting.

Happy Easter!
Arms of Love is my "Holy Week" quilt as it reminds me in symbols of the death and resurrection of Christ. He is the truth that anchors my life. Here's a close up of the anchor in the larger quilt.

Sometimes you can reuse an image in another quilt. Different fabrics create a new look in Into the Deep.

The Palm

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week in Christianity, commemorating Christ's entry into Jerusalem as the crowds waved palm branches.

I thought I'd post another image of Tropical Radiance, a quilt based on a traditional block called The Palm.
The palm block makes a strong statement in sharply contrasting colors and values.
