Quilt Block in Honor of St. Anne

St. Anne is one of my favorite saints. I pray to her every day to help me in my parenting and in my writing. She was the mother of Mary and the grandmother of Jesus. She is often symbolized by a book because she was Mary's first teacher. She is also frequently symbolized by a lily because of the purity of her daughter.

In this 12" x 12" quilt block, I have combined these symbols. I have incorporated two lilies along with a book. I have also used a blue field in honor of Mary, and used purple for the book in honor of Jesus.
