WOMEN OF THE BIBLE: LOT'S WIFE
In pondering the quilt block for Lot's wife, I have several thoughts. What would Sodom look like with the burning sulfur raining down? Would it be red and blinding? Would it be white and gray ash, reminiscent of the pictures of the towers on 9/ll? In the end I've decided to make the "stripes" of increasing urgency to look back dark. Dark represents the evils of Sodom that Lot's wife was so reluctant to let go of. I'm combining that with blue, the light. That's a color I associate with heaven.
