Bible Verse Quilts

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!
