The vibrant colors and intricate details of each stitch in this stained glass-inspired artwork capture the essence of the Good Shepherd's story with unparalleled beauty. The central image portrays Jesus, the Good Shepherd, standing amidst a lush green pasture, surrounded by his flock of sheep. His gentle gaze and outstretched arms convey love, compassion, and protection.
Each individual block represents a part of Psalm 23, carefully crafted to depict the verses that resonate deeply with believers. The first block showcases the opening lines, "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing." It depicts a shepherd carrying a lamb on his shoulders, symbolizing the shepherd's care and provision for his flock.
The subsequent blocks illustrate various aspects of the Psalm, such as "He makes me lie down in green pastures" and "He leads me beside quiet waters." These scenes present idyllic landscapes, complete with lush fields and serene streams, reflecting the peaceful and nourishing nature of the Good Shepherd's guidance.
As the story continues, the stitched artwork portrays the challenges and dangers that life may present. The block representing "Even though I walk through the darkest valley" depicts a shepherd guiding his sheep through a rocky path, shining a lantern to illuminate their way. This block serves as a powerful reminder that even in our most challenging times, the Good Shepherd is with us, leading us through the darkest valleys.

What's included with The Good Shepherd?
The image evoked by the famous Psalm reminds us all of God's faithfulness to us. Now, we’ve turned this famous scene into something truly stunning: a stunning 30-block tile scene mimicking a stained glass window!
To illustrate the Psalm in beautiful appliqués, we gathered up a series of vibrant colored batik fabrics, allowing for the natural variations in their washes and patterns to work throughout the scene.
Ornate shapes and an intricate-looking border help frame the finished work in a way that truly completes the final image, and satin stitch outlines create the look of the lead line work from true stained glass windows.
Entirely digitized in appliqués, the Good Shepherd Tile Scene utilizes beautiful fabrics to mimic the look of the stunning stained glass windows commonly seen in majestic cathedrals.
