Let nothing be lost

Wool quilt "Nothing Lost" quilt by Paul Loebach

In the last couple of years, I acquired a newfound love for modern quilting. While this beauty here is made of wool, its construction embodies the biblical quote (John 6:12) it comes from.

In the passage, Jesus had just fed a crowd of 5,000 with two loaves of barley bread and five fishes, before asking his disciples to pick up the leftovers, so nothing would go to waste. The barley bread leftovers filled 12 more baskets.

I am so mesmerized by the beauty of this quilt and its existence as a metaphor for that miracle. (I don’t think I want to know how much it costs, however.)

    • Well I need to get a small project out of the way and then I’m doing a triangles quilt for my grand-nephew. I’ll post the other finished one soon now that it’s been gifted!
