Bible-based quilt blocks.  Quilting through the Bible.  Each square represents verses, symbols, and people from the Bible.  Squares are intricately pieced.  Two (2) patterns and instructions will be provided for your choice of the week.  This is a great quilt for using scraps of fabric, or you can purchase Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes, or Fat Quarters.  Size of quilt is your choice. All finishing instructions will be provided as we get closer to completing the blocks of our choice.

Blocks will be 8×8″ blocks. Original pattern is 6×6″, so we will be making some small adjustments.
