Perhaps Moses…Finished

What began as a class lesson on perspective has finished as Moses and Pharaoh’s Daughter.  Most of us are familiar with the biblical story of Moses’ birth from Exodus Chapter 2: 1-10.

Had I known that the background was to become the setting for Moses, I would’ve chosen shades and tints of alabaster to create it (seems more Egyptian to me).  But I had no end result in mind, and the background sat around for longer than I care to admit.

No matter that the details are not accurate.  I’m an artist, right?  I can take certain liberties.  What’s important is that when one looks at this quilt, one can see the story.

So here it is:

Perhaps Moses – Part 5

It has been a long time since I worked on this wall hanging.   Some of you will recognize this.  Some of you probably thought that I ditched the thing!

Moses

It depicts Pharoah’s daughter and baby Moses, inspired by the Biblical account in Exodus Chapter 2.

I am thread painting the applique.  In other words, I’ve lowered the feed dogs on my sewing machine and I am adding detail with thread.
