Majestic Glory

God has many names throughout the Bible and after researching His many Names, one that is meaningful to me is Majestic Glory.  I recently made a small art quilt and decided to name it Majestic Glory.  This particular name can be found in the Bible in the following verse: II Peter 1:17:  

“For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” NIV

The quilt depicts a purple mountain scene with grassy areas painted with threads, embroidered french knot flowers, and beaded flowers in the foreground.  As I made the quilt, I kept being reminded of God’s Majesty and Glory.  I printed His Name – Majestic Glory – onto silk, painted it with gold fabric paint, and hand-stitched  the silk piece onto the quilt. 

This quilt was made to glorify Him.
