Bible Studies is a labor of love. Each quilt includes 73 different blocks:one for each book of the Bible, including the Apocrypha. I designed the throw quilt and wrote the block patterns in 2011. I wanted to share the quilt and Bible stories with my grandchildren. Once I completed the first quilt, I thought I should share the patterns with our email customers, so in 2011-2012, we sent the free patterns on our weekly email. This quilt was the FIRST of our faith-based pattern series.
Each block pattern represents a book of the Bible and includes information about the book and why I chose that particular block to represent the book. Some of the books are obvious (I chose a sailboat to represent Jonah) and others are not as obvious (I chose log cabin to represent Numbers). Hopefully you will enjoy the blocks as much as I have.
is a 73-block pattern series representing the 73 blocks of the Bible, including the Apocrypha. All blocks are 6" finished, using a straight piecing method. No applique or paper-piecing. The blocks can be assembled into three different quilts: Bed Quilt, Bed Runner and Throw Quilt.
