Scenes from the Holy Land: Sea of Galilee landscape, applique wall hanging is my quilted fiber art rendition of the shores of Lake Kinneret, in Northern Israel.
This is the second of a series of handmade, applique Kinneret quilts. I think this part of the country is beautiful and I have tried to convey this in my quilt. I hope you too can appreciate the countryside by peering into the waters of my work. I used numerous fabrics to depict the rocks and mountains. The water is made of hundreds of strands of fibers sewn together.
