Boys of the Bible
Pattern Series


Introduction
Over 900 men are mentioned in the Bible — far too many to include all of them in this quilt, but all worthy of further study and reflection. Throughout this pattern series, we will take a closer look at 100 men mentioned in the Bible. We call these men, “Boys of the Bible.”

This pattern series is being offered FREE to our email customers while we test the individual patterns.  Please contact us if you find any errors or have any difficulty with the patterns.
