Here are the song lyrics that inspired this art quilt. Using one of my first hand-dyed pieces of whole cloth, embellished, of course, with lots of color, angelina fibers threads, cording, yarn, foil and more.
“Down the mountain the river flows, And it brings refreshing wherever it goes, Through the valleys and over the fields, th river is rushing and the river is here.
The river of God sets our feet a’dancing, The river of God Fills our heart with cheer,The river of God Fills our mouths with laughter, And we rejoice For the river is here!
The river of God Is teaming with lifem And all who touch it Can be revived, And those who linger On this river’s shore, Will come back thirsting For more of the Lord, To the mountain we love to go To find the presence of the Lord, Along the banks of the river we run, We dance with laughter giving praise to the Son”
