In searching for a quilt that would be meaningful to show for Christmas, we came up with this beautiful mini quilt by Vicki Bohnhoff. Knock And The Door Shall Open To You is the title of the quilt.
For this original design, Vicki Bohnhoff says, "I combined the door image of a Mykonos, Greece chapel with a Byzantine-Christ mosaic of an unknown artist to convey the Bible verse Matthew 7:7." Vicki has created a scene of a remote village with a small church whose single bell tolls out the message of the New Testament. Her lovely quilting pattern gives a striking three-dimensional look to this work, as if you could almost imagine entering through the red door for a Christmas Eve candlelight worship service.
Above: The most famous of the Byzantine mosaics of the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, made in the 12th century. As we celebrate the arrival of the Christ child and the arrival of new light into the world, we wish each of you and your families a very blessed and Merry Christmas.
