Flock of Ravens Quilt




Clara and I designed and pieced this together, and she did all the embroidery, quilting, and finishing. It's called Flock of Ravens,


and the two sides are embroidered with this verse:


"It shall be that you will drink of the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to provide for you there." (I Kings 17:4). A promise of provision.


It's made out of garment scraps (black and white) and kona cotton (the white). Machine-pieced, hand-quilted in perle cotton. Also, it's a wedding present for Giles and Tia--but not a surprise :)

Everything about the quilt is beautiful - and the thought of a young couple's young marriage being covered by that verse is wonderful.

I think this is perfect. The verse is wonderful, and the tonal white-on-white and black/grey are just right for a city apartment. It will not feel out of place at all. Generally run-of-the-mill quilts don't interest me much, but the marriage of words or symbols and fabric always fascinates me. Thank you for the inspiration!
