Resurrection Quilt

The Resurrection Quilt by Katie Longsmith, 2020 / size: 70″ x 84″ / Hovering Hawks quilt block / flames quilting design
The second quilt in my Easter series is called Resurrection, and uses the Hovering Hawks quilt block – which dates back to the Civil War era. Its strong diagonal lines reminds me of birds in flight, soaring to the heavens. Made from fabric scraps leftover from other quilts, my modern version depicts Christ’s resurrection – from the darkness to the light – on the third day, He rose again.
