My Pattern Book Arrived

 The Pattern Book for Harriet Powers's Pictorial quilt arrived yesterday.  I'm lingering over each page, the quotations for each panel, and the wonderful drawings from Harriet.
One of my favorite panels so far, a dove, since the doves had sent Jim on his final journey.  The caption reads, "John baptising Christ and the spirit of God descending and rested upon his shoulder like a dove."

  1. Hi Nancy,
    That is so nice to have the doves in a block. I look forward to seeing that one completed.
    Hugs, Angela.
