Lily among Thorns
Song of Songs bears a special meaning for me, as my name is derived from it.
This piece is one of a pair. The young woman stands among thorns, while a single lily appears on the left.
The fabric in these pieces is a hand-dyed cotton sateen and it is a very prominent part of the quilt. The artwork combines painting with oil-sticks, hand embroidery and machine quilting. The biblical text is printed on the background.
