   THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE


The Greatest of These is Love is a fabric painting depicting a rose in a trellis background.

  • This fabric painting was created as a wedding gift for my brilliant and talented ceramics teacher, Cathy Schroder-Hammond.
  • It was hand-crafted as a tribute to all she had taught me in this discipline.
  • It quotes from Corinthians 13:13: "So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
  • The rose and lattice image was first drawn on paper and then transferred to cloth. Fabric paint was used to finish the painting.
  • Quilting was then added.
  • That the bridal couple used the same meaningful words on their wedding invitation was an astonishing coincidence.
  • Size: 9.0" x 12.0".
  • Date: 2002.
  • Not available for purchase.
