Baptism Day, done in wool and needle-turn applique with embellishments, is the fifth block of our “Forever Bound” LDS Museum Quilt. Baptism Day is a beautiful scene of purity and being washed clean, with the dove representing the presence of the Holy Spirit and lilies symbolizing rebirth and renewal. The small bud is for the child who will grow in wisdom to become a full flower in time. The four full blooms are the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel: faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the Holy Ghost. This quilt was featured as “His Works- My Blessings” in the 2012 LDS International Art Competition and the March 2013 issue of The Ensign. The block finishes to about 17″ and will be one of 9 applique blocks, 4 tree of life blocks, pieced setting triangles, and borders that make up the entire quilt. It can also be used as a pillow top, if desired. The full pattern is being released on a block-of-the-month basis, so you can create your own museum piece.
