Block 17 Real Presence

CLICK HERE TO ENLARGE

Pattern Source

This block is based on an original block by Elly Sienkiewicz, which she made for the 50th anniversary of an archbishop's ordination.


Block Title

"Real Presence" represents the Catholic belief that Christ is truly present, body and blood, soul and divinity, in the Holy Eucharist.


This Leg of the Journey Completed December 2007

Teddy has a great devotion to the sacraments of the Catholic Church, and I wanted to represent the greatest sacrament of all in this quilt, which will eventually belong to him.

The fabric for the chalice is a scrap of fabric for an Edwardian vest I made for him to wear in a school play. He loved the vest so much that he wears it regularly, and it has become his signature. He requested that I find a way to include a bit of the fabric in his quilt.


Lesson Learned

If you're making a block for someone special, find a way to include a snippet of fabric from a favorite garment of theirs.
