For week 2 of our study I fused and machine appliqued this Desert Rose block for the God Who Sees Me/El Roi. The Desert Rose represents Hagar when she ran away into the desert and met God who saved her and gave her a promise "I will so increase your descendants that they will be too numerous to count."...
She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: 'You are the God who sees me,' for she said, 'I have now seen the One who sees me.'" --Genesis 16:13
The week 3 block is a paper pieced The Mountain Peak block which represents God Almighty/El Shaddai.
"When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, 'I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless, I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.'" --Genesis 17:1-2
I have chosen fabrics with abstract and geometic gold touched designs on black, white, red, blue, green, and gold for my Quilting the Names of God quilt. The fabrics for Praying the Names of Jesus
are also gold touched but the designs are based on nature since Jesus came down to live and die on earth; he could be seen and touched. The abstract designs are more austere and less natural since the Bible tells us that humans cannot look upon the glory of God with natural eyes.
