Reflections of Eve: CreationThe Reflections of Eve series was created to emphasize the freedom that we have to return to the text and rethink the traditional interpretations of the stories of Adam and Eve.

Creation: The left side of this quilt illustrates the creation story found in Genesis 1:1-2:4a in which the world was created in seven days. The right side tells the story of creation according to Genesis 2:4b-2:25. The wedge between the two creation accounts represents the gap that exists between the two stories and the midrashim that try to, but cannot, reconcile the two. The orange border symbolizes God who surrounds both stories of creation and the chaos of the midrashim. God is not divided by the two stories, nor does anything separate God from His creations. Through this quilt, I hope to deemphasize the second creation story of woman from man’s rib and the foundation of women’s inferiority that has been read into the text.
