I have been working on a piece that represents the first part of the weekday morning service.  Since this section of the service is rooted in the physical world, thanking God for our many blessings, I am using the heavier fabrics that I used in the Psukei D’Zimrah piece.  I designed this new piece in AutoCAD – a program I have from my engineering days.  It works well for these kinds of quilts and I was able to create a pattern for paper-piecing in AutoCAD.  From that pattern, I matched fabrics with each section, choosing 6 blue fabrics for the subtle Star of David points.  Below are pictures of the pattern and process.  Now, each section needs to go together!
