Quilt Block in Honor of St. Monica

Saint Monica (331 A.D - 387 A.D.) is known as the mother of St. Augustine, who prayed (and cried) long and hard for her wayward son's conversion to Christianity. He went on to become one of the greatest saints.

This 12" x 12" quilt block could easily be titled "A Mother's Tears." The blue diamonds represent the tears St. Monica cried over her son. The green backdrop is a representation of St. Augustine and his excellence in philosophy.

This is a repeating pattern which could easily be worked up to create a whole quilt.
