Design Wall Monday 5/9/11 -Siggie Done

Baby Alan has been very cooperative and wanted two long naps during the day, so I've made a lot of progress on the signature quilt due Saturday, May 14th.  I just have to finish the binding, bury the threads, and it is done.  I called it "God calls and His people hear in the books of Old". 


Why such an odd title?  This quilt is a thank you gift from the 60 students to our professor for an extension class entitled:  Introduction to the Old Testament.  It has been an excellent, excellent class.  We were very fortunate to have one of the nation's acknowledged eminent scholars of the Old Testament teach the class, Daniel Smith-Christopher (he has a wiki page!).  He has taught at LMU for 21 years.

I designed the quilt on EQ using the Jacob's Ladder block and a Roman Stripe block.  I needed lots of places for my fellow students to sign their names and their favorite Old Testament book.  The writing in the middle is Hebrew for Yahweh.  I quilted it in sections - a modified QAYG method that I will talk about in another post and will probably do again.  It's 51" square.  Do you think he'll like it?

I just love your quilt and the writing in the middle. Where did you find the Hebrew text for Yahweh? I do just love the word Yahweh, by the way.
