Women of the Bible – 11 & 12

Posted Saturday, March 17th, 2018 in Quilting | Read More

The blocks this week are named for Naomi and Judith. These were two quick and easy blocks. I did change the way I made the triangle in a square parts of the Judith block. I used my  Tri-Recs tools  instead of following the pattern instructions. It made cutting and constructing it much simpler.

I wasn’t sure I would get them made this week after being sidelined with illness. I am finally feeling well enough to go up to my sewing room and work a bit today. I am also working on another quilt that has been in the UFO pile for years. I will post more about that quilt later. Here are the Naomi and Judith blocks.

Women of the Bible Blocks 7-10

Posted Monday, March 5th, 2018 in Quilting | Read More

I made blocks 7 and 8 in February but didn’t take pictures of them until I had completed the next two blocks. Block 7 is Rebekah. The designer of the block said she chose Crosses and Losses to reflect Rebekah’s story. The large light hourglass represents Rebekah, the mother caught between her twin sons, represented by the small dark hourglasses.

Block 8 is Ruth, a loyal daughter -in-law to Naomi.

The next two blocks are Bathsheba and Esther. Bathsheba married King David and was the mother of Solomon. Esther was of Jewish heritage and was chosen Queen of Persia.

The next two patterns will be available on March 15th.
