Quilt Block in Honor of St. Mary Magdalene

St. Mary Magdalene was one of the earliest followers of Christ. She is known as the Apostle to the Apostles because Jesus appeared to her after his Resurrection, and she then went to tell the Apostles.

Throughout history, she has been known as the repentant sinner, and her symbols are a skull or a jar. While you can certainly make a quilt block that looks like a skull (they have Halloween blocks that include this), I decided to go with a jar design as it is a better fit for the quilt I am working on.

This 12" x 12" block has several pieces but it works up easily enough. If you want a different color scheme, you can certainly use one. You just need to adjust the shades accordingly in order to keep the 3D illusion of the jar.
