I made each of these Bible Verse quilts as gifts, so I had to wait until all three were delivered before I could share them with you. The first one was made for our pastor and his family who left our area. I love pairing fun colors with these Bible verse panels. Here’s quilt #1. It is the Prayer of St. Francis paired with colorful batik fabrics.
Quilt #2 was made for one of our current pastor and his wife. Our church had a “pounding” for them as they moved into their new home. For those of you not familiar with a pounding, it is an old tradition where a couple was showered with a pound of things they might need for their pantry. I decided instead of a pound of something a Bible verse quilt would fit the bill nicely. This quilt is the “Love” chapter from 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13. Here’s quilt #2. Yes, the border fabric is the same. I believe in maximizing my fabric usage!
Quilt #3 was made for our missionary family serving in Madagascar. I had the info that their living room colors were orange and yellow and she picked the verse – Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord”. I really love the colors. I tried every combination of batiks I could find in my local quilt shop until I found “The One”.
I love making these small panel quilts. They make great gifts and help me hone my free motion skills and bonding with my Bernina 750.
Until next time, Happy Sewing & Quilting!
