24/7 is a quilt about time measurement featuring our glorious sun. The sun is the star at the center of the solar system. Almost perfectly spherical, it consists of hot plasma interwoven with magnetic fields. Life on earth could not exist without the sun.
The ring of blue and orange is made of 60 sections representing the ticking of 60 seconds in a minute; 60 minutes in an hour.
The stars in the blue background stand for the world time zones with the Prime Meridian at the 12:00 position & the International Dateline at 6:00. The outermost ring is made of 365 multicolored strips representing the days in a year. The checkerboard fabric strips are spaced every seventh strip to indicate Sunday, the first day of the week. Leap year is depicted on strip 365 with two pieces of fabric (one a leaping frog).
Each clock around the sun declares the hour with dark blue hands. Here's 5:00.
What a universe we live in, a showpiece of the genius and power of Almighty God.
