Grace….

….is the name of this piece that I showed you a few posts back. It seems apporpriate this weekend to share the meaning behind it:

Here is my artist statement for this piece:

My world and my faith are inseparable. This quilt is an expression of Ephesians 2:8-9 that says it is by grace that I am saved through faith, not by my good works or good intentions. Though at times, I have tried to reach a place of communion with my Creator by means of good deeds,  truly I can only reach this place by means of His grace. This quilt is a reminder to me that I don’t have to be good enough because His grace is sufficient. When I couldn’t reach Him, He reached me.

Here is a detail of the very heavy quilting:

Until next time….
