The verse I have to deal with is about one of these judges named Ehud. His name means 'united' and we know about him that he was left handed.
He ruled in a time where the children of Israel were under bondage under Eglon the king of Moab. The Israelites cried unto the LORD, and "the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud....(judges 3:15)
Verse 16 now....But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.
With this dagger he killed Eglon and therefore delivered the Israelites from the enemies, the Moabites.
This is the first time I haven't made any sketches. I just saw the picture of a dagger in my mind. And decided to go for a simple representation. I first thought about using strong colours. Like red and yellow to represent anger and blood.
|I drew a dagger on freezer paper and tried to make a mirror image|
|Just a picture before quilting, because I might ruin it.....Planning to quilt a 'target' on top and that might be tricky...|
Planning to use my red hand-dyed fabric for a small border. But first...quilting time. I am planning on a target, which might be hard sewing perfect circles and the fabric might pucker and...I am going to try it!
