Each block entirely hand embroidered, then bordered with a multi-color fabric to blend with embroidery floss colors. This photo was taken in the lay out planning stages.
I like the multi-colored sashing
This is stunning; nice job!
Awesome! Did she design it herself? I definitely want to know more.
Janice G: No, actually she did not design the blocks, the patterns were from an "Aunt Martha's" brand of iron-on transfers titled "Old Testament" and "New Testament". My mom found them at a ben Franklin Crafts store in west tennessee. Family members were fighting over the quilts...so for over 10 years I've searched the internt trying to find them, but this year Jo-Ann Fabrics has listed them. I'm definately going to have to get another set or 2.
I figured that out when using Google I found someone else with similar pictures on a Bible quilt. I have since found the patterns and ordered them.
Do you believe you Mom would allow me to display her quilt on my Bible Quilts blog (www.biblequilts.com)? I have been writing about the different Bible quilts I have found by doing Google searches for Bible quilts.
Please contact me directly.
Debra, I went ahead and made a post on my blog without a quilt picture, but I do hope that when your mom finishes her quilt she will allow me to post it on my blog with a little input from her on how long it took her to make it and how she chose her fabrics and colors. It is going to be such a pretty quilt when she finishes it.
