  • Re: Bible Quilts group?

    Thanks, Linda. The quilt is my own design. I would like to publish the pattern if I can find the time to write it all out. I'm afraid my first priority has to be getting the children's Bible storybooks and coloring books out. I think I'm wearing too many hats. :-)

  • Re: Bible Quilts group?

    I have nearly completed my first Bible quilt, The Creation. This picture shows it displayed at an outdoor book signing I attended last Saturday. I still have to use a hoop to hand quilt inside the hexagon blocks, and I may add a few more rows of machine stitching in the border. I am also trying to encourage...

  • Trimming appliqued quilt blocks

    When I started learning to do hand applique quilt blocks I was encouraged to make them with 1" seams. The person who recommended this to me knew little or nothing about my skills to do this and was worried that I would have many pieced highly puckered and would need the extra margin of safety. I...

  • Re: Sashing a hexagon quilt

    If I did piping it would still be 1" wide. I would cut the pieces 2 1/2" wide (instead of 1 1/2") and sew it into the same seam with the applique pieces. Then I would spread the piping to both sides from the seam and hand-stitch it down. The down side is that it would take a long time...

    This is the computer-generated file of the quilt as I have planned it.

  • Sashing a hexagon quilt

    I have finished my picture book, The Creation, and am now ready to cut and assemble my creation Bible quilt t. I plan to use it when I get speaking engagements about my book and about making Bible quilts. When I purchased the fabric I wanted for my sashing I had second thoughts and purchased two additional...

  • Border for Creation Bible Quilt

    I am selecting fabrics to use for the sashing and border to make a Creation Bible Quilt. The hand appliquéd quilt blocks are finally completed. Do these colors and textures work OK? This picture was put together on my computer with downloaded fabric files. Since the downloaded files are made from...

  • Re: Bible Quilts group?

    I am so excited to learn of your quilted stained glass window approach. Are you planning to make them to sell them, or is this your personal ministry? I use the hexagon/honeycomb with my pictures to emphasize that God's Word is sweeter than honey from the comb. Honeycomb Adventures Press, LLC is...

  • Re: Bible Quilter from South Carolina

    I added one more Bible quilt to my gallery. This one is not appliquéd quilting. My grandchildren helped to color the pictures. I'm still struggling with getting it quilted. I started to do that with my sewing machine and it broke. Now a friend with a long-arm sewing machine has it, but I'm...

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today? #3

    I have continued to work on my Day 6 (of creation according to Genesis) quilt block for my Bible quilt. I started to say this was my only UFO until I remembered two more. Yay! I qualify for this group after all. I have one small quilt I started to practice quilting top to bottom before tackling a larger...
