One of my most favorite quilts that Ferne Zabezensky shared with us during her Jewish Quilting presentation was an I-Spy quilt.
Using many of the 100+ fabrics containing Jewish symbols Ferne has collected, this quilt is unique and a true labor of love.
Novelty fabrics featuring the Menorah, Star of David, lions, Torah, crowns, goblets, doves, bird nests, Jerusalem, dreidels, and gelt (to name a few).
Isn't this a wonderful way to share and teach faith to children?
While they look to find the matching picture within the quilt, allows a perfect opportunity to teach the meanings within the symbols.
An I-Spy quilt can be applied towards representation of many faiths and beliefs.
After meeting Ferne, I have begun looking at novelty prints in a whole new way.
I will now be aware of Jewish symbolic fabrics, and wonder if Ferne has this particular piece.(probably so!)
And I would like to start collecting symbols in fabrics that represent my values and faith.
