This is a closeup of block one from the Pictorial Quilt, courtesy of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
As described by Harriet Powers, the first block,
Job praying for his enemies. Jobs crosses. Jobs coffin.
Using my Pattern Book to scan the images and enlarge them and then I use the computer monitor like a light box to trace the applique pieces onto freezer paper.
