Bible Quilt and More

I saw on Jan Patek's blog that she was going to be doing her Bible quilt as a BOM. That reminded me that I had the patterns. I haven't seen her say anymore about it, but I plan on doing one block a month. It will be a mix of wool and cotton. Here's block 1 for January. Not too bad considering I started it on the 30th! It has been awhile since I've done anything very primitive so I'm looking forward to this.

Here is block #8 of Beyond the Cherry Tree quilt. Pretty boring all by itself, but together with the other blocks it will be a wonderful quilt.

 I joined a doll swap that Christine organized. My doll quilt is ready to ship off to Dorothy in the Land of Oz. I'm only allowed to give a sneak peak until it arrives at its new home. By the way, be sure to check out Dorothy's amazing quilts! Her header quilt alone will knock yer socks off!
I ordered this cute necklace from Etsy's One Stitch Off. Pam and Debbie, fellow quilters are responsible for making these. I hate to remove it from the packaging it is so cute!! Mostly they make quilty kind of necklaces, but I believe they take special orders too. It is nice when we can support each other! Thank you ladies! I love it! (it looks like they've added some new things on Etsy!!)

I hope everyone came through the cyclone and snow storms OK. We've been sunny, cold and dry in Central Oregon.

  2. I love your Bible quilt block. I have some Bible quilt books that I want to use to assemble one for myself. I think it's a great idea.

    I love your block that you think is pretty boring. I find it to be beautiful and it reminds me of spring:)

    Enjoy your stitching time!

  7. I'm also working on Jan's Bible Quilt. I appliqued five blocks a few years ago and there it sat. I substituted one block--adding Daniel in the lion's den. I'm not adding the embroidered verses. I want to finish mine this year too.

  9. The Bible quilt looks like it will be really cute! She has information about it on her side bar. We had 3-4 inches of snow overnight. It comes on top of the ice already on the roads. All the schools are closed.

  18. That is a wonderful pattern and think it would be nice to hang on a wall or banister, to show off the design. I was going to make my own version, then got carried away;)

  22. I am hoping to make the Bible Quilt with Jan this year. I think they are knocked out of commission with the snow back there so I am trying to be patient while they thaw.
