I created The Flood quilt in the '90's - Genesis account of the great flood. Designed in my head before sketching - ark to go across the whole quilt - picture the story progression in sections through & around this big boat. Click on quilt to enlarge.
1. Judgement from God on all people but Noah & family
2. Noah obediently builds ark
3. animals to ark
4. God shuts door/rain starts/people swept away
5. safety aboard/rain stops/great wind/water recedes
6. bird to find dry land
7. all leave ark/Noah gives thanks/God sets rainbow-promising never to flood entire earth again.
The Flood in invitational exhibit of Narrative Quilts @Yeshiva University Museum in NYC. What fun to be at the opening, watching people excitedly discovering all there is to see in this piece. Quilt in private collection.
