(Description beneath image)
Challah cover (1998). 100% cotton.
Pieced patchwork, with machine quilting and hand-stitched lettering.
In this cover, the purple, orange
and red rays of a sixteen-pointed mariner's star float out from
an aqua and black background. The design is bordered with multicolored
fabric strips that incorporate all of the colors in the starburst
at center, with just a few flashes of marine blue to evoke the background
as well. On the inside reddish-brown strip that outlines the star
and background, I have stitched in Hebrew the words, "In honor
of Shabbat and the holidays." The entire piece is machine-quilted
to show the wealth of detail and textures on both the front and
the brown reverse sides.
