The powerful images of Pentecost – the Holy Spirit coming down to the disciples, touching them as the stood watch, giving them the abilities they needed to go forth in their mission – are captured in this ultra unique quilt design.
The bold red background pops against the white, and the gradual fading of color in the tongues of fire from deep red, to orange, to yellow mimics the heat of burning flames. The dove appears to dive above the burning flames, and the border plays off the colors in the flames as it, too, follows a similar color progression from deep red at the bottom to the brilliantly pure white at the top.
Acts 2:1-4 says: “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” Share this story in creating your quilt; we, too, are given gifts and abilities to empower us on our mission.
