Machine piecing, hand papercut appliqué, machine quilting
The design for this quilt originated with the discovery of a block named “Shepherd’s Light”. I developed the shepherd theme by incorporating imagery from the 23rd Psalm:
~ green pastures and still waters ~
~ rod and staff ~
~ a table prepared before me ~
~ the house of the Lord ~
~ my cup overflowing ~
Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
The Lord is my shepherd.
His Spirit is my strength.
