Hallelujah! Quilt

One of my dear friends is the pastor of Greater Zion Baptist Church of Jefferson, Pa, and I made him this Hallelujah! Quilt to commemorate his service and our friendship. I mixed some faith affirming t-shirts with African wax print fabric, and I had fun with a few quilting patterns to make this gift.

Hallelujah is a Hebrew word that literally translated means “Praise ye the Lord” or “Praise Yahweh”. Many Christian and Jewish denominations use this expression in their services and rites.

African wax print production dates back to the 1800’s. Today, most fabric that is sold as wax print is made to look like traditional fabric rather than using traditional methods.
