The latest Sew Jewish pattern is a mini quilt with traditional Jewish folk symbols of peace and divine protection. The five symbols on the quilt are drawn from Jewish popular culture, the Torah, and Judaism’s mystical tradition:
The design was inspired by the wooden shadow boxes used to display collections of favorite objects. The edges of the quilt are finished very simply, and the quilt is designed to sit inside a 8″ x 10″ (20.3cm x 25.4cm) frame to resemble a shadow box. You can see more images of the quilt on Etsy.
The Shalom Shadow Box Mini Quilt Pattern is available as a PDF instant download on Etsy: Shalom Shadow Box Mini Quilt Pattern.
For beginners, the pattern includes instructions on machine applique and the simple embroidery stitches used in the design, as well as links to helpful resources on the Sew Jewish blog.
And for sewists everywhere, American and metric measurements are given throughout.
Peace through sewing.
